Essex Crossing Site 3 Begins its 15-Story Ascent to Luxury
Essex Crossing reaches another mini milestone as its new building atop Site 3 visibly begins the ascent. The superstructure just passed a height of two stories and is continuing upward to fifteen.
Construction of 202 Broome Street (the official name) is part of Phase II of the billion-dollar mega-project, which kicked off last year and already yielded two new buildings. It’s billed as a 15-story development with 83 market-rate condos (no affordable housing here) and more than 150,000 square-feet of commercial space dedicated to the Market Line.
There is also a tunnel route connecting 202 Broome Street with its neighbors at 115 Delancey (Site 2) and 180 Broome (Site 4).
In the meantime, traffic around this intersection remains a nightmare, as it was completely reconfigured for the duration of the project. Indeed, the block of Suffolk Street between Broome and Delancey is closed to pedestrians and motorists “until further notice.” There is no outlet.
