With four of nine SPURA parcels activated for the Essex Crossing mega-project along Delancey Street, much of the spotlight remains fixated on those buildings. The recent spate of construction is all linked to Phase I work. However, word came down the pike yesterday that Site 4 is getting ready for the big dance.

The Real Deal yesterday spotted fresh paperwork filed with the Department of Buildings for 180 Broome Street (Site 4), the still-functional parking lot bounded between Clinton and Suffolk. Plans call for 263 apartments with 198,927 square-feet of residential space, plus an additional 148,067 square-feet designated commercial. Regarding the latter, a retail market will occupy the cellar while stores related to the Market Line round out the ground level. (The Children’s Museum of Manhattan, currently based on the Upper West Side, was previously rumored to be in discussions for 70,000 square-feet of space here. Plans were not fully confirmed.)

The application shows offices for the second through fifth floors, residential terrace and exercise rooms on floor six; more than a dozen residential units will occupy floors six through twenty-four.

Handel Architects is the designer of record at 180 Broome, the same firm behind the 24-story “Gateway” tower at Site 2 (115 Delancey).

Site 4 is technically part of Phase II development. Therefore, there are no renderings for the project just yet.

Meanwhile, the first Essex Crossing-related signage just popped up next door at Site 3, pimping the Market Line retail endeavor. “The City’s Marketplace” arrives in 2018, it reads. The banner now covers up the dated Lower East Side BID parking information.

Construction of all nine parcels is scheduled for completion in 2024. See you then.
