HPD Files Plans for 15-Story Essex Crossing Building on Broome Street

Posted on: July 24th, 2017 at 5:02 am by

There is a torrent of Essex Crossing news of late. Here’s the latest.

Last Friday, the Department of Housing and Preservation Development filed plans for a new 15-story construction and obligatory foundation work at 202 Broome Street, currently a functional parking lot. The new mixed-use development includes 83 market-rate condo units across 104,594 square-feet (no affordable housing here), according to permit applications on file with the Department of Buildings. The project also includes 153,819 square-feet of commercial space, the majority of which is earmarked for the Market Line, the assemblage of shops connecting to the Essex Crossing “Gateway” building across Norfolk Street. The second through fifth floors will feature office space and a terrace garden (Broome Street); plus, there will also be 102 spaces for bike parking (80 for residential use, and the balance for commercial).

CetraRuddy is the architect on the project.

202 Broome Street (aka Site 3) is the second development coming to light as part of the overall Phase II. As previously reported, the vacant Essex Street Market warehouse at Essex is slated for demolition to make way for the affordable senior building onsite.
