Even though the rendering for what's to come at 188 Ludlow Street has been floating around Wired New York for a little while, we have yet to put it up in this space, instead sticking to an empty parking lot. But, ya know, it's the dog days of summer, so what better time is there to force hipsters to claw their eyes out and bemoan their ruined enclave for about the 20th time in the past six months? The first residential building from Edison Properties (of Edison Parking and Manhattan Mini-Storage fame) will be 23 stories tall and contain 243 units, but let's forget about the details for now. Instead, just enjoy this image, snagged from the Costas Kondylis & Partners website. When this thing is done, will Katz's raise their prices even higher? There'll be a new clientele just steps away.
