YIMBY can reveal exclusive interior renderings of the 14-story, 55-unit mixed-use project under development at 242 Broome Street, located on the corner of Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side. The latest images depict the condominiums as well as the project’s residential amenities, such as the rooftop terrace and an entertainment room. DXA Studio is responsible for the design of the interiors.
Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place for Lower East Side megaproject Essex Crossing. Applications have been filed for a 25-story, mixed-use building at 180 Broome Street, between Delancey, Clinton, and Suffolk streets.
At the start of the month YIMBY announced the topping out of Watermark Court Square, at 27-19 44th Drive. The 168-unit rental building had added around 17 floors since the end of May. Building permits place the height at 282 feet, although it is not certain whether the figure includes its mechanical bulkhead. In either case, the 27-story tower now stands among the dozen-tallest buildings in the Court Square district, eight of which topped out less than a year ago.
Foundation work appears to be complete for the 25-story, 195-unit mixed-use building being developed as part of the Essex Crossing mega-development, at 115 Delancey Street, on the Lower East Side. A tower crane was also installed at the site, the Lo-Down reported, which means vertical growth is imminent. The latest building permits indicate the structure will encompass 498,688 square feet and stand 285 feet above street level. The building will have 139,493 square feet of commercial-retail space – in addition to bel0w-grade space that isn’t counted in documents — spread across the cellar through fourth floors. The cellar level, the ground floor, and mezzanine levels will contain retailers, including the new home of the Essex Street Market. This portion will form a third of the Market-Line, a bi-level, 150,000-square-foot retail complex that will connect below-grade to two other buildings in the Essex Crossing development.
