The New ICP Center at Essex Crossing Loses Eleven Madison Park
What was once touted as the “cultural anchor of Essex Crossing” is now dead in the water.
Catching up on some Essex Crossing miscellany…
Hospitality group Make it Nice (of Eleven Madison Park fame) joined forces with the International Center of Photography well over a year ago, with the ambition to provide premium private event services at the ICP’s new $26 million digs at 242 Broome Street. This symbiotic relationship didn’t pan out – Eater recently reported that project delays were the reason for the pull out.
Speaking of pull out, Make it Nice has been all over the press lately, with the news that Daniel Humm and Will Guidara are professionally divorcing. Humm is said to be buying out Guidara, and that current projects won’t be affected. The Essex Crossing withdrawal purportedly came before their falling out.
As for the vacant ICP space at Essex Crossing? Back to the drawing board. The museum is slated to open sometime later this fall.
