The third of four Essex Crossing buildings in Phase I is but a few feet from the top, and already beginning to resemble the renderings.

“Curtain wall” deliveries to Site 1 over the last few weeks have really started filling out the skeleton of this new Essex Crossing condo development, the only one of its kind in Phase I. Indeed, the first few floors boast the jagged beige facade. When all is said and done, 242 Broome Street will reach fourteen stories.

Memories of the municipal parking lot and summers of Shakespeare in the Parking Lot couldn’t be further in the rearview.

Condo sales at 242 Broome Street, meanwhile, went on line at the end of September, with prices starting at $1.275 million for the fifty-five units. Twenty percent of these apartments are earmarked as “affordable.” And to help peddle the inventory, developer consortium Delancey Street Associates installed a sales office on Orchard Street in the former Mark Miller Gallery. As of today, there are only nine apartments available, including the $5.25 million penthouse.

As reported, the fourteen-story mixed-use tower is designed by SHoP Architects, with DXA Studio handling the interiors.

Speaking of commercial space at Site 1, Splitsville Lanes, a luxury bowling alley, is confirmed for the basement level; the search is still ongoing, however, for a cultural institution in the wake of the Andy Warhol Museum’s break from the project two years ago.
