Mahfar’s ‘REAL New York’ Brokerage Moves up Ludlow Street
Samy Mahfar’s in-house real estate brokerage, REAL New York, is on the move and will relocate up the block.
The retail office has been headquartered in the ground floor of 143 Ludlow Street ever since the controversial landlord acquired the tenement in 2012 for $5.2 million and began upscaling (at the expense of longtime tenants and retail). Now it’s set to move operations to 164 Ludlow, as announced by a sign in the windows. And flanked by another leasing sign once the space is available.
The new offices will take the commercial footprint previously occupied by Ludlow Guitars for more than a decade, and most recently, the ODD. boutique. The latter decamped to Williamsburg last fall because the Lower East Side was “no longer for us.”
