Advertising the Ludlow, circa 2011

Nearly ten years on, The Ludlow was apparently looking a bit long in the tooth.

It was late 2008 when the 24-story building first opened its doors, ushering in an era of luxury living in Hell Square. The upscale rental development – arguably the first of its kind in the over-saturated three-by-three square-block – entered the scene just as area hyper-gentrification began to spiral out of control.

Now, it’s keeping up with the Joneses. For the last ten months or so, management worked to “referesh and reinvigorate” common areas within the building, plus introduced amenities that “aligned with the lives” of residents. Fogarty Finger Architects was behind the job, which just completed, according to an overconfident email blast from their PR mouthpiece.

The building’s new polished aesthetic reflects not only the rich history of the neighborhood, but the tenants who have made it their home. Original artwork and bold accents capture the vibrant essence of Ludlow residents and offset a natural palette of clean lines and sleek silhouettes.

And what the fuck does this mean? The “fleeting college coed”?

Once a neighborhood for the fleeting college coed, the Lower East Side has transformed into an area rich with culture, restaurants and hotels – and its residents have changed as well.  Encompassing the new energy of its residential community was central to the Ludlow redesign.
