Last month, the United Hebrew Community, a Jewish burial society, sold the two tenements they’ve occupied for over a century at 201-203 East Broadway on the Lower East Side. Now, plans have been filed to build a seven-story modular building in their place.
New renderings have been published of Essex Crossing‘s 150,000 square-foot bi-level market, dubbed Market Line, per Curbed. The food market will span under Norfolk and Suffolk Streets, on the Lower East Side, connecting to three separate buildings planned on different blocks within the development. The future location of the Essex Street Market will feature an above-grade, two-level promenade, in addition to 9,000 square feet of garden space. A slew of retail options will be made available, in addition to the previously disclosed attractions, including a Regal Cinema and bowling ally. SHoP is designing the Market Line component.
Construction at 100 Greenwich Street is in full swing, as the 25 story hotel’s lower levels are now taking shape. The building was designed by architect Gene Kaufman, whose similarly scaled hotel at 6 Water Street is currently rising on Manhattan’s southern tip.
Back in June, YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the 51-story, 68-unit residential tower at 5 Beekman Street/115 Nassau Street, in the Financial District. In the summer, the building was a few floors from topping out, and now, per Curbed, the building has topped out with exception of the metal ornamental turrets. The Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel-designed tower rises from the 10-story Temple Court building, which is also being converted into a 287-key hotel. GFI Capital and GB Lodging are developing, and completion is expected next year on both components of the project.
Nearly a year ago, YIMBY provided a construction update on Related Companies’ 10-story, 107-unit residential building planned at 460 Washington Street, in Tribeca, and now crews are adding the finishing touches to the building, per DNAinfo. Late last year, the building topped-out, and façade installation and interior work have been ongoing since. Units will average roughly 1,300 square feet apiece, and Related will rent 22 apartments (20 percent) at below market rates; the application process has just launched. BKSK Architects is designing, and completion is expected in early 2016.
