Excavation has begun at 208 Delancey Street, the site of a 119-foot-tall, 11-story residential development on the Lower East Side. Located near the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge between Pitt Street and Ridge Street, the 80,200-square-foot project is designed by ODA Architecture and developed by New Empire Real Estate Development, with Shiming Tam Architect as the architect of record. The building will contain 69 condominium units averaging 854 square feet apiece.
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.
Construction has passed the halfway point on 199 Chrystie Street, a 14-story, 39,188-square-foot condominium building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Progress has been swift since YIMBY’s last visit in April 2019, when excavation was still underway. Located near the intersection of Chrystie Street and Stanton Street, the project is designed by R. Wade Johnson Design and is being developed by KD Sagamore Capital, which purchased the plot for $20 million. Two buildings, 199 and 201 Chrystie Street, were demolished to clear the way for the new development.
