Essex Crossing this month announced the start of leasing at its latest luxury tower – The Artisan.

Located at 180 Broome Street, this beast is the largest building at the nine-site project. Its floors contain office and retail space, as well as access to the Market Line, which is gradually reopening from the pandemic shutdown.

Rents start at $3,000/month for studios, $4,000/month for one-bedrooms, $6,000/month for two-bedrooms, and $8,000 for three-bedrooms.

Designed by Handel Architects, the 26-story tower boasts a five-story podium reserved for office space, topped by residential (263 apartments). Based on the related marketing, The Artisan’s facade of oversized frames is apparently a nod to the trussed structure within the nearby Williamsburg Bridge.

Of the 263 units, 121 are income-restricted and a lottery launched earlier this year for those.

It’s a hell of a time to be asking such high rents, though, given the effects of the pandemic on the rental market.
