The glass curtain wall of 202 Broome Street has reached the final setback of the 14-story mixed-use building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by CetraRuddy, the property will feature 175,000 square feet of Class A offices with a max of 13-foot-high ceilings, 34,500 square feet of retail space, 83 residential units, and a 9,000-square-foot indoor park and recreation area called Broome Street Gardens. The project is part of the six-acre Essex Crossing complex, which is being developed by Delancey Street Associates, BFC Partners, L+M Development Partners, Taconic Investment Partners, The Prusik Group, and Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group.
202 Broome Street
YIMBY went to check in on the progress of the nine-building Essex Crossing complex on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, where two structures are getting closer to completion. The exterior of Handel Architects‘ 180 Broome Street is almost finished, while façade work is rapidly progressing on the CetraRuddy-designed 202 Broome Street. Both mixed-use developments join the six-acre master plan that is expected to cost $1 billion and will bring more than 1,000 new homes, 100,000 square feet of green space, over 350,000 square feet of offices, and 300,000 square feet of retail to the booming neighborhood. Triton Construction is the general contractor for the project.
YIMBY checked in on the progress of two properties under construction at Essex Crossing: 180 Broome Street designed by Handel Architects, and 202 Broome Street designed by CetraRuddy Architecture. One of the largest developments to come to the Lower East Side, Essex Crossing is a mixed-use project composed of nine different buildings as part of a $1 billion master plan to bring new affordable housing, retail, dining, entertainment, and communal facilities to the neighborhood.
Right next to the pedestrian walkway entrance for the Williamsburg Bridge, Essex Crossing is already reinventing Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The nine-building development will cost over one billion dollars and create nearly two million square feet across a six-acre area, and the aerial scope of construction is now expanding well beyond the initial first new two structures.
