Glass, glass, everywhere. The foot of the Williamsburg Bridge will lose its grungy edge in the next decade with the development of “Essex Crossing,” the first major step in SPURA revitalization. The Mayor’s office just released the first batch of wince-worthy renderings of the project, designed by SHoP Architects.
As the images illustrate, the complex is set to include new retail, restaurants, office space, a movie theater, parks, an Andy Warhol Museum and 1,000 apartments. Not to mention a new Essex Market location. Half of the fresh housing stock is earmarked as “affordable.”
