Market Line Set for November 20 Debut at Essex Crossing

Posted on: November 1st, 2019 at 5:00 am by

Yet another milestone for Essex Crossing. The subterranean Market Line is a few weeks from the limelight, roughly one year later than initially communicated.

Opening date for the first third of the bazaar is currently slated for November 20, as communicated to participating vendors. (We’re bearing from vendors that this is their grand opening day.)

Once fully activated, the Market Line is to occupy 150,000 square-feet beneath three contiguous Essex Crossing developments on the south side of Delancey Street. Connected by tunnel passageway. Two dozen vendors are part of this first class, so to speak. And most are offshoots of established local businesses.
