Another Look at the New 26-Story Essex Crossing Tower

Posted on: January 4th, 2018 at 5:08 am by

Another day, another news story about Essex Crossing. This time it’s to show off an updated rendering of the 26-story tower on its way to 180 Broome Street (aka Site 4).

This vantage point is of the north side of the building, from Delancey Street.

Handel Architects is behind the design.

As previously reported, 180 Broome will feature about 10,000 square-feet of ground-level retail, 175,000 square feet of Class-A office space on floors 2 – 5 and 263 rental units rounding out the levels above. Of those apartments, 121 are earmarked as affordable.

The cellar is where one-third of the overall Market Line “bazaar” is housed, connected via underground passage to Site 3.

The Essex Crossing developers recently secured a $200 million loan to allow construction on this parking lot to move forward. The Site 4 tower will be built at a cost of $300 million, with an expected completion date of sometime in 2020.
