It’s a real estate trend endemic of New York City these days. Landlords sit on retail vacancies for months, sometimes years, before filling the ranks. Some call it warehousing, and it’s hurting the neighborhood. Just walk down Orchard Street.

One of said warehoused stores, a Misrahi-managed property, is now replaced. Any Old Iron fled 149 Orchard Street more than a year ago for the musical pastures of Nashville. Now its former HQ is undergoing a transformation into a showroom for interior design.

This latest Hell Square entrant is called Sire Home, a boutique firm that specializes in high-end lighting fixtures and furnishings. Proprietor Anthony Spenceley introduced the concept on Facebook, noting that “I will also host events that promote the arts and will feature regional/neighborhood fashion designers, musicians, and realtors.

Here is a conceptual drawing of the finished product at 149 Orchard:

Sire is certainly riding on the coattails of all the luxury developments muscling into the neighborhood these days. Expect an opening in the coming days.
