Just two more former storefronts — those of Lobster Joint and Tim Horton's — remain standing along East Houston between Orchard and Ludlow so that Ben Shaoul's 10-story retail-residential complex with an Equinox gym can rise.
However, as the Commercial Observer reported last week, there is a slight hitch here: The board of the six-story condo at 179 Ludlow Street (see the arrows below!) hasn't responded to Shaoul's request for "non-invasive pre-construction survey" at the building.
Shaoul has reportedly asked the Supreme Court of the State of New York to grant his reps a limited license to access the Ludlow Street condos.
Finally, as you know, Katz's, who sold their air rights, will remain in its longtime home.
