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.
Leasing has launched for the 421 units at Two Blue Slip, aka 41 Blue Slip, a 40-story residential tower on the East River waterfront in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Park Tower Group and Brookfield Property Partners, the reinforced concrete structure is the tallest completed building in the 22-acre Greenpoint Landing master plan, which is also being developed by L+M Development Partners.
Work is nearing completion at 25 Park Row, a 702-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper in the Financial District. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L+M Development Partners along with the family behind J&R Music World, the 50-story building will contain 110 residences marketed by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, as well as commercial space handled by Cushman & Wakefield.
L+M Development Partners has closed on $179 million in financing that will support the construction of three new buildings within the Marcus Garvey Extension Project. Located in Brownsville, Brooklyn, the buildings will establish 348 affordable and supportive housing units and approximately 13,400 square feet of commercial and community facility space.
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.
