Now that construction is getting underway on two buildings within the Essex Crossing mega-development on the Lower East Side, Site 6, located at 175 Delancey Street, will probably be the next to get started. Planned is a 14-story, 100-unit mixed-use building that will measure 177,950 square feet. New York University’s Langone Medical Center announced last summer it would be taking space in the new building, and The Lo-Down now reports a 15-year lease deal has been finalized for 55,000 square feet across three floors. The four-story podium will also contain 6,000 square feet of retail space. In addition, a 13,000 square-foot senior center will take up the fourth floor and will include a coffee shop called Think Grand Cafe. There will be 24,000 square feet of space for an education facility, although a tenant has not been selected. The base will be topped by a 4,000 square-foot outdoor garden and a 100-unit apartment tower. The residential units above will be rented exclusively to seniors.

When completed, Essex Crossing will be a big deal for the Lower East Side. The multi-building project is on the former Seward Park Urban Renewal Area, and will have several residential structures, as well as commercial amenities galore – from a new Essex Street Market to a Regal Cinema, a bowling alley to a medical center, gardens both beer and regular, office space, and more. Construction is now underway and we have photos to show you, an exclusive courtesy of Tectonic.
New renderings have been published of Essex Crossing‘s 150,000 square-foot bi-level market, dubbed Market Line, per Curbed. The food market will span under Norfolk and Suffolk Streets, on the Lower East Side, connecting to three separate buildings planned on different blocks within the development. The future location of the Essex Street Market will feature an above-grade, two-level promenade, in addition to 9,000 square feet of garden space. A slew of retail options will be made available, in addition to the previously disclosed attractions, including a Regal Cinema and bowling ally. SHoP is designing the Market Line component.
Roughly a year ago, YIMBY reported on filings for Essex Crossing‘s 15-story, 211-unit mixed-use building planned at 145 Clinton Street, on the Lower East Side, and last January we revealed renderings of the project. The 300,000 square-foot building includes 43,000 square feet of commercial space, and Planet Fitness is now expected to lease 22,000 square feet on the second floor, The Lo-Down reports. A 30,000 square-foot grocery store is also planned for the ground floor, though it currently lacks a confirmed tenant.
Back in January, YIMBY revealed renderings of Essex Crossing‘s 14-story mixed-use building planned at 175 Delancey Street, on the Lower East Side, where 100 units of senior housing will rise above a four-story podium. Now, NYU’s Lagone Medical Center has disclosed that a 40,000 square-foot medical facility will span three floors in the base, The Lo-Down reports.
