Here’s the Glassy 12-Story Newcomer Headed to Ludlow Street

Posted on: April 9th, 2021 at 5:00 am by

The halo of Essex Crossing continues to upscale the composition of the adjacent blocks. Towers just keep rising. And another is planned for a former produce wholesaler on Ludlow Street.

While construction permits were filed one year ago for 89-91 Ludlow, only now is the proposed design available for public consumption. The glassy newcomer is to rise 135 feet, replacing the three-story building and adjacent parking lot onsite. It’ll boast 41 units across 28,650 square-feet (some earmarked as Mandatory Inclusionary Housing), plus a 3,300 square-foot commercial space.

Prolific Chinatown architect Raymond Chan is behind this project, as well.

As previously reported, 89-91 Ludlow Street – former home of wholesaler C&L Restaurant Supply – hit the market in August 2017 for $18 million. The property sold two years later for $12.3 million to 91 Ludlow Street, LLC which is developing the property.
