Rumors swirling the last few weeks about SoHo House taking over 139 Ludlow Street gained some serious legitimacy yesterday. Gothamist reports that top brass of the swanky private club is currently “in talks” to open a location at the onetime funeral parlor. However, ongoing building renovations would push any possible launch into next year. There’s certainly been an uptick in activity on premise of late…

This latest news notwithstanding, we’ve also heard plenty of talk to the contrary, that 139-141 Ludlow will instead become high-end condos. Either way, some sort of upscale item is coming to this amazing piece of architecture.

    Why would Susan stetzer approve this and not approve a latin bistro around the corner? Where are the so called dwellers that care so much of this neighborhoods quality of life? Makes me wonder is this racial?

      Neighbors are tracking the activity at 139 Ludlow. I believe a quick explanation on the procedure of community review will answer your questions.

      Business owners initiate liquor license applications through the community board, which no one has done. Concluding from this report, a liquor license request won’t appear for a while here, if at all. Community boards do not vote on rumors and a district manager can’t implement anything without a vote.

      You ask whether it is racial(ly motivated?) to “approve” a non-existent liquor license application around the corner from an application currently under review by NY State that was denied by the community board. (To review: no application = no board vote = no approval or disapproval.)

        @34d66e6bc19ad70db5586e1192040432:disqus remember those words,(a liquor license request won’t appear for a while here, if at all) Well see in a couple of months, it won’t be rumors. Oh an about that license being denied by the community, check the minutes on that application see who had more in favor then oppose. I believe a quick explanation on the procedure of community review will answer your claims. LOL!
