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.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission is scheduled to review a proposal to partially renovate and repurpose the ground floor areas of the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank in Lower Manhattan into an immersive digital museum and gallery. Titled “Hall Des Lumieres,” the exhibition would feature 3D projections of the works of famed Austrian painter Gustav Klimt and would require architectural modifications to both the building’s façade and landmarked interiors.
YIMBY took a quick look at the current state of 21 Greenwich Avenue. Proposals from BKSK Architects call for a renovation of the 179-year-old corner property and the construction of an attached five-story edifice that would replace an abutting one-story structure. The new building will have a mixed façade of floor-to-ceiling glass, steel details, and brick masonry. The design firm previously submitted its plans to the Landmarks Preservation Commission and is awaiting approval. Higgins Quasebarth & Partners is credited as the preservation consultant for 21 Greenwich Avenue.
