26-Story Tower at Essex Crossing Site 4 Begins its Ascent
The short-lived respite from cranes on Delancey Street just concluded. Site 4 of Essex Crossing is pushing upward in a big way now.
Two weeks ago, fully six months after construction began onsite, a tower crane was assembled for the duration. Its job – to erect a 26-story superstructure at 180 Broome Street. And with foundation already complete, the first elements of the new building are now visible, ascending above the plywood threshold.
“Trucks will be staged in our DOT designated staging lanes on Suffolk and Norfolk Street,” the developer’s weekly email advisory states.
From the vantage of Broome Street, and with traffic temporarily suspended, the blocks between Essex and Clinton are in total ruins.
As previously reported, the 26-story tower will be stocked with 263 apartments (half affordable) across nearly 200,000 square-feet of residential space, plus an additional 148,067 square-feet designated commercial. The Market Line is part of the equation here, that much-ballyhood “bazaar” linked to the two nearby developments via underground passageway.
