Essex Crossing Tops Out Final Tower in Phase 2 of Development

Another milestone reached for the billion-dollar Essex Crossing project. Two years after the second phase of construction commenced, the last of its developments just topped out.

The fifteen-story building at 202 Broome Street (aka Site 3) reached the top last week. Token American flag marks the achievement. It took less than six months for the superstructure to ascend from the pit.

As previously reported, the new tower, designed by CetraRuddy, boasts 83 condo units and 175,000 square-feet of office space known as Essex Crossing West. Apartment sales are slated to kick off next spring, with a target occupancy date of 2021.

Site 3 also contains square-footage dedicated to the Market Line underground bazaar.

There is also a tunnel route connecting 202 Broome Street with its neighbors at 115 Delancey (Site 2) and 180 Broome (Site 4).
