The 26-Story ‘Gateway’ to Essex Crossing Tops Out
Essex Crossing this week celebrates another milestone. The fourth and final building in Phase I of the billion-dollar mixed-use project has reached the top.
The 26-story tower (revised from 24 stories) at 115 Delancey Street (aka Site 2) – referred to as the “Gateway” development – officially topped out yesterday afternoon. Token American flag currently flutters from the peak.
As previously reported, the new construction will boast the souped-up Essex Street Market facility, the Market Line, a 14-screen Regal movie theater with 1,250 seats, a 12,000 square-foot urban farm on the roof of the five-story podium, and 195 residential units (split 50-50 between market rate and permanently affordable).
As for the Essex Street Market, the $15 million replacement facility is a threefold size upgrade, offering 37,000 square-feet of available retail, and a 4,700 square-foot mezzanine level that boasts seating and a “demonstration kitchen.” The larger space also allows for eleven new vendors and two restaurant tenants to join the family. It’s scheduled to open in September 2018, with all current vendors making the journey.
