Another piece of the puzzle has fallen into place for Lower East Side megaproject Essex Crossing. Applications have been filed for a 25-story, mixed-use building at 180 Broome Street, between Delancey, Clinton, and Suffolk streets.
180 Broome sits right next to the approach for the Williamsburg Bridge, and it’s Site 4 on the city’s nine-site master plan for the 1.9 million-square-foot development.
The plans include 198,927 square feet of residential space and 148,067 square feet of commercial space. The building will hold 263 apartments, beginning on the sixth floor. The ground floor will have stores and part of the Market Line, a 150,000-square-foot public market and food hall that links Sites 2, 3, and 4. A landscaped public space called the Broome Street Gardens will occupy 9,000 square feet on a mezzanine level above the market, running through three different buildings.
The building’s second through fifth floors will host offices, and the sixth floor will have a shared terrace, amenity spaces, a laundry room, and 12 apartments. The remaining stories will have 14 apartments apiece.
Delancey Street Associates, made of BFC Partners, Taconic Investments, and L+M Development, is developing Essex Crossing. Handel Architects is designing this piece of it, along with Essex Crossing’s largest building at 115 Delancey Street (Site 2). That building will offer 198 rentals—half of which will be affordable—and a huge retail component with a new Essex Street Market and a 1,250-seat Regal movie theater.
