The Ludlow

188 Ludlow Street   |   Lower East Side

The Lower East Side features some of the New York City's hippest shopping destinations and best restaurants, a nightlife scene that ranges from cool dives to exclusive nightspots to cutting-edge music venues. What the LES did not have, until 2008, was a top-tier luxury rental building. That changed when the Ludlow opened on the bustling corner of Ludlow Street and East Houston Street. The Ludlow instantly became a Lower East Side landmark, thanks to an eye-catching design by architect Costas Kondylis, but it also rocketed to the top of any list of elite Lower East Side luxury rentals. As notable for what it offers residents as it is for its heart-of-it-all location in one of lower Manhattan's most desirable neighborhoods, The Ludlow offers some of the most luxurious rental apartments on the Lower East Side, at a location that offers easy access to everything that makes the Lower East Side the Lower East Side.

The Ludlow offers 24-hour doorman, concierge and valet services, making all the little details of life in the city from laundry and dry cleaning to dinner reservations to finding the right dog walker, masseuse or specialty shop that much easier. The Ludlow's luxurious rental units are wired with building-wide wireless internet and Verizon FiOS television, while the on-site residents' multi-media lounge and billiards room offers a comfortable place to kick back. The state-of-the-art fitness center and Yoga and Pilates studios rank with the very best private facilities in the neighborhood. The fully landscaped terraces and sundeck offer unbeatable city views and the comfort of a quiet place above it all.

The apartments for rent at The Ludlow range from studio apartments to spacious two-bedrooms and offer a variety of floor plans, but each rental at The Ludlow measures up to the same high standard for cool, downtown Floor-to-ceiling windows, equipped with Levalor window treatments, offer stunning city views and tons of sunlight, while the high ceilings lend the spacious rooms an open, airy aspect. The gourmet kitchens offer granite countertops and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, while the marble-accented baths boast Kohler fixtures and large mirrors. Most apartments also offer enormous walk-in closets, in-unit washers and dryers and white oak pantries; features stunning new oak plank flooring. With a location at the nexus of one of Manhattan's coolest neighborhood and amenities and rental residences that place it among the elite of new Manhattan rental listings, The Ludlow has become an instant neighborhood landmark, and one of the most sought-after rental listings on the Lower East Side.
