Essex Crossing Tower at 180 Broome St. Tops Off at 26 Stories
Another building at Essex Crossing has been “topped off.” Delancey Street Associates, the developers of the mega-project in the former Seward Park Urban Renewal Area, announced yesterday that 180 Broome St. has reached its full height of 26 stories.
The tower, scheduled for completion next year, will include 142 market-rate rental apartments and 121 units designated affordable by the city. The building will also feature 175,000 square feet of office space and a portion of the Market Line, the subterranean shopping pavilion that will eventually stretch across three sites.
A neighboring building, 202 Broome St., will soon start rising on the Essex Crossing campus (excavation work is now being completed). That 15-story market rate condo tower will also include a significant amount of office space. Taken together, the two buildings will boast 350,000 square feet of office space, which the developers are attempting to lease to a single firm.
Seven of nine Essex Crossing sites are now finished or under construction. Early next month, a new Essex Street Market will open in the sprawling Essex Crossing complex. There will ultimately be more than 1,000 apartments at Essex Crossing, about half of them affordable to low- and middle-income residents.
Delancey Street Associates includes BFC Partners, L+M Development Partners, Taconic Investment Partners, the Prusik Group and the Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group.
