The 9 Orchard Hotel is located less than 200 feet from Yuan Tong / Cheng Chio Buddhist Temple, on the corner of Allen and Canal Streets (18 Allen Street / 61 Canal). Cheng Chio has served the community at this address for more than 20 years.

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Law prohibits certain licenses from being issued if the location of the establishment is on the same street and within 200 feet of a building that is used exclusively as a school, church, synagogue or other place of worship.

We, your constituents, submit this petition in support of a variance to New York State's 200-foot rule for 9 Orchard Hotel under the following terms which are different from the resolution voted on and submitted by Community Board 3:

  • Neighborhood Restaurant & Bar (ground level, corner of Allen and Canal): 12am closure Sunday-Thursday; 1am closure Saturday and Sunday; one stand-up bar; no live music or DJs; no televisions; 97-person capacity.
  • Hotel Dining Room (ground floor, Canal Street): 1am closure, no live music or DJs; no televisions; 78-person capacity.
  • Hotel Lobby Lounge (ground floor, corner Canal and Orchard): 2am closure; one stand-up bar; no live music or DJs; no televisions; 65-person capacity.

We oppose a legislative variance to 200 Ft Rule if these terms are not agreed in full.
