Work has finally begun at a long-awaited hotel site on the Lower East Side.

Plans for a hotel at 79 Eldridge Street were first submitted to the city almost two years ago, but construction on the project has just recently started, according to Bowery Boogie.

Although the initial proposal was for a 10-story hotel, the project will now be 14 stories tall and include 48 rooms, along with 1,243 square feet of community space.

The parking lot spent three years on the market before Eldridge Hotel LLC — an entity linked to the Wyndham Hotel Group — purchased it in 2016 for $5.3 million. [Bowery Boogie]Eddie Small
