Rivington House Co-Owner Picks up Pair of Ludlow Tenements for $12.5M

Posted on: June 22nd, 2017 at 5:11 am by

Last week, we learned that the corner tenement at 101 Stanton Street (at Ludlow) changed hands for $12.9 million. It was sold by Arwen Properties/Luthien Group to a small consortium of real estate firms. Now, it appears the company simultaneously cashed out the two adjacent properties on Ludlow Street, too.

While prior rumors of sale proved unfounded, public records currently show that 151-153 Ludlow Street sold last week as a joint lot for the princely sum of $12.5 million. Buyer of record is Slate Property Group, which is reviled this side of the Bowery for its involvement in the Rivington House scandal. (Slate, China Vanke Co., and Adam America Real Estate together purchased the former nursing home for $116 million after the city lifted the deed restriction.)

Residents state the the following letters were slipped under doors earlier this month. Given what transpired just a few blocks away at 45 Rivington Street, this doesn’t appear as good news for the buildings. Or the block.
