SPURA Lot 5, slated for towers, school, and park
The gears of Essex Crossing are gradually creaking into motion, bringing the community one step closer to construction hell. We’ve already noted the appearance of preliminary demolition permits for the southernmost Essex Market building at 115 Delancey (Olympic Restaurant, Jade Fountain) and for the historic firehouse on Broome Street. Now for the new.
Beyer Blinder Belle Architects – partner in the consortium of developers and designers tasked with the project – filed a permit application on Friday to construct the fifteen-story mixed-use tower currently slated for SPURA lot 5. Approximately 223,000 square-feet of real estate is planned, split between both residential (179,915) and commercial use (42,993). That equates to a total of 211 dwellings, a parking garage for 98 cars and 124 bicycles, third-floor terrace, and “public park.” It is the latter use which seems to confirm the location, given that three different SPURA tax lots are part of the 141-145 Clinton address.
Recall that this property is part of Phase I in the Essex Crossing project, and will also house a school and public park. Groundbreak is to commence in spring 2015, as previously reported.
Said public park is deep into the planning stage. Landscape Architects West 8 New York already visited Community Board 3 a couple times to provide updates, most recently this past June. Over 35% of the green area is to be populated by greenery of various tree species, seasonal flowers, and other plantings.
