More Than Halfway to the Top, Essex Crossing Site 4 Gets Glassy
Development under Phase II of Essex Crossing is firing on all cylinders. Each of the new buildings currently rising is in a varying stage of ascent. Over at Site 4, the intimidating superstructure is more than halfway to the top.
And the glare-friendly, glass skin is making its way up the facade.
As previously stated, this development at 180 Broome Street, designed by Handel Architects, will peak at 26 stories. It’ll house 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, too; the much-ballyhood “bazaar” is linked to the two nearby developments via underground passageway.
Meanwhile, the box-o’-blocks at Site 9 on Essex Street – to become affordable senior housing – is starting to dwarf its neighbors.
