Max Fish to Live Longer at 178 Ludlow?
Skater punks rejoice. Word on the street is that the Max Fish reprieve at 178 Ludlow Street will be extended past one year. The legendary dive, which met closure at the hands of the Seventh Precinct just two week ago, might have Hotel Ludlow developer Serge Hoyda to thank. A Boogie tipster living near the stalled eyesore sent in some street-level intel:
My super told me Serge Hoyda is closing on the Max Fish building next month and letting Max Fish stay longer than a year! This may also lead to finishing the hotel at 180 Ludlow Street.
Back in September, Curbed reported on a rumor that BD Hotels was in contract to purchase the embattled concrete skeleton, but was awaiting the resolution between hotel developers and the owners of 178 Ludlow over damages during construction.
