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.
