​With foundation work underway and the start of superstructure activity at Site 1 near, the time is apparently ripe to begin pimping the condo component of Essex Crossing. This fourteen-story building represents the only condos up for grabs in phase one of the overall project.

To get the word out, Delancey Street Associates (the consortium of developers behind Essex Crossing), is taking over Mark Miller’s former gallery space at 92 Orchard Street. In its place is a “Design Gallery” for 242 Broome Street. Teaser signage in the windows already proclaim the years-down-the-road condos, hitting the requisite in the description. Yes, this mixed-use development promises to offer “a collection of meticulously detailed 1-3 bedroom condominiums.”

Information on pricing or dedicated website are still unknowns at this point.

Essex Crossing Site 1, May 2016

At fourteen stories, the forthcoming SHoP-designed tower will boast 55 units with an 80-20 mix of market rate and affordable respectively. Splitsville Lanes, a luxury bowling alley, is confirmed for the basement space. The Andy Warhol Museum backed out of the project last year, and a cultural tenant of some kind is still sought.

As previously reported, Mark Miller, landlord of 92 Orchard, decided to close his eponymous gallery earlier this year after two decades on the block. “I decided to take a break from the gallery to have more time to focus on my real estate business and have more free personal time,” Miller told us a few months ago.
