Essex Crossing Tops off 5th Tower on the Lower East Side
Not a week goes without some sort of milestone for Essex Crossing. The latest being the completed vertical ascent of Site 8 on Essex Street.
The new box-of-blocks sits atop the ashes of a former Essex Street Market building that sat dormant for decades. Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, the eight-story mixed-use tower boasts 92 affordable studios for senior housing (in an area ripe with nightlife). Residents will have access to a second-floor residential terrace, laundry room, and eighth-floor library. It’s expected to debut later this year.
There is also 9,645 square-feet of ground-level retail. The Magician bar is planning to occupy some of that space as part of its latest expansion plan.
While not yet completed, this apartment building is the fifth Essex Crossing development to materialize.
