Ludlow Street – Lower East Side

Ludlow Street – Lower East Side

145 Ludlow is a ground-up, six story, 8-family unit residential building on New York’s hip and upcoming Lower East Side in Manhattan. The building features about 15,000 SF of space including a commercial space on the first floor and cellar and two two-bedroom apartment units per floor on the upper levels. The penthouse consists of a two-level layout overlooking the surrounding roofscape. All apartments have access to storage units in the cellar, a bike room and a roof terrace that overs 360 degree views over the whole city. The apartments to the back have balconies towards the courtyard.

Oversized windows bring in ample light into the apartments that feature white oak wooden floors and marbled bathrooms with Kohler, Hansgrohe and Toto fixtures. Light colored open kitchen layouts complete the elegant, clean, modern look of the apartments.

The front and back facades blend into the neighborhood with a dark, reddish brick and their dark metal, European window and use of bluestone panels for the first floor.
