More LES Hospitality: Ludlow Inn to Welsh Up the ‘Hood

While picking through Eater's entertaining recap of yesterday's shenanigans at Community Board 3's liquor licensing committee meeting, one particular agenda item caught our eye. An upscale bed-and-breakfast with a Welsh tea house/pub at the corner of Ludlow and Canal Streets along the Lower East Side/Chinatown DMZ, a building with the rare distinction of having three addresses: 1 Ludlow Street, 38 Canal Street and 144 Division Street. The board asked the Ludlow Inn (as it's called) owner to meet with neighbors, and a vote was delayed until next month. By the look of its PropertyShark photos, the building is kinda funky. According to StreetEasy, the four-story building was sold for $1.2 million in May 2007, then flipped for $2.2 million last December while being marketed as a single-family conversion with a ground-floor commercial space. Grub Street has a few more details on the bed-and-breakfast project, noting that the first-time owner will carve out three guest rooms with prices around $300 per night. The neighborhood seems to have a high-end hospitality project on every block, but this one looks fun.
