One of the city’s largest-ever public murals will soon adorn The Rollins, one of nine buildings at the Essex Crossing mega-project on the Lower East Side. Brooklyn art duo ASVP was commissioned for the project following a borough-wide call for submissions from Delancey Street Associates, the development team responsible for Essex Crossing.

A new mixed-use tower within the billion-dollar Essex Crossing development has officially topped out above the Lower East Side, Manhattan. Located at 180 Broome Street, the 26-story tower is designed by Handel Architects and will eventually contain 175,000 square feet of office space, 263 rental units, and 27,000 square feet of retail area. The building is expected to complete by the end of 2020, while the full Essex Crossing project is planned to wrap up by 2024.
Leasing has officially launched for The Essex, a new residential rental tower on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The 26-story building at 125 Delancey Street will be the tallest component of the 1.9 million square foot Essex Crossing development, comprised of residential buildings, commercial components, a 14-screen Regal Cinemas, redevelopment of the historic Essex Market, and a new bazaar-style marketplace.
A new rendering has been released detailing a multi-use structure located in the South Bronx. The property which is currently owned by the city is one of the largest in its possession, and is situated on the Harlem River waterfront just north of the 145th Street bridge, adjacent to the Major Deegan Expressway. The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has partnered with the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), as well as Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) in their development of the property.
The building boom enveloping New York City’s waterfront neighborhoods extended into Coney Island last year, with several big projects entering the pipeline. Today, YIMBY has the first rendering for the largest one yet, slated to rise on Surf Avenue. The redevelopment will yield 1,000 apartments, 150,000 square feet of retail space, and 80,000 square feet of offices, indicating the neighborhood’s post-Sandy rebirth is continuing with vigor.
