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.
Lower East Side
Demolition permits have been filed for the one-story building at 151 Broome Street, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Located between Clinton Street and Pitt Street, the mid-block structure has been home to Little Star of Broome Street, an early childhood center servicing the neighborhood. Kevin Cronin of the non-profit organization Grand Street Guild is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Earlier this month, the City Planning Commission approved proposals for four new skyscrapers coming to the Two Bridges section of the Lower East Side. The tallest of the bunch will be 247 Cherry Street, adjacent to the site of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. The upcoming 1,008-foot-tall residential skyscraper will be designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, and is the 11th tallest tower underway in the Five Boroughs. This supertall is the only project on YIMBY’s end-of-year list where site work has not yet begun, although with City Planning approval now secured, that is hopefully a matter of imminency.
Almost impossible to miss when looking at the Manhattan Bridge from the Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, the Lower East Side, or almost anywhere else in the city, One Manhattan Square rises 847 feet into the sky, and is the 18th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. With its reflective chevron window pattern on the north and south elevations, the glass residential building holds 1,260,000 square feet of space with 25,516 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. It was designed by Adamson Associates, and is being developed and marketed by Extell.
Demolition permits have been filed for 331 and 333 Broome Street and 145, 149 and 151 Bowery in preparation for the mixed-used corner development at 331-337 Broome Street and 151-153 Bowery. Filings include the full demolition of three 3-story commercial buildings, and a 5-story mixed use building currently on the lot.
