SEP 27, 2016

Name/Address: 242 Broome Street

Developer: Delancey Street Associates

Architect: SHoP Architects (exterior), DXA Studio (interior)

Size: 14 stories, 55 apartments

Prices: from $1.275 million to over $7 million

Sales and Marketing: Douglas Elliman

After years—even decades—of planning (and skirmishes), the former Seward Park Urban Renewal Area is finally opening itself up to residents. The first condos within the megaproject, now better known as Essex Crossing, are officially on the market, with nine apartments in 242 Broome Street (a.k.a. Site 1) available as of today.

The building, designed by SHoP Architects, is currently under construction but when completed, it’ll be home to 55 one- to three-bedroom apartments. Additionally, 11 of the apartments that will be deemed “affordable,” with those units hitting the city’s affordable housing lottery sometime next spring.

Interiors, by DXA Studio, are designed to “balance serenity with modernism,” and will have predictably luxurious touches: Calacatta marble finishes, radiant heated flooring, high ceilings, and custom vanities, among others. There are also a host of communal amenity spaces—roof deck, fitness center, entertainment room, and the like. It’s expected to be completed in 2018.

The building’s location, at the corner of Broome and Essex Streets, puts it on the western edge of the Essex Crossing site map. It’ll be home to a few of the megaproject’s much-touted amenities—a fancy bowling alley, and a to-be-announced cultural center—and will be close to the Essex Street Market, the new Market Line, and other educational and cultural offerings.

With the sales launch comes new renderings, along with floorplans that show off exactly how these apartments will be laid out. Check those out below.

The Lower East Side will soon be home to one of the country’s most exciting public markets when construction on the Market Line food hall and retail space at Essex Crossing is complete. The culinary hub will be among the largest multivendor markets in the country, with over 150,000 square feet of sunlit space for food vendors, clothing stores, galleries, and service-oriented businesses. Providing a new home to the Essex Street Market has been a major goal for the space, which aims to pay homage to the Lower East Side’s diverse history while adding amenities to the downtown enclave. “We want the locals to be there because that’s what makes it a public market,” says Prusik Group’s Rohan Mesra, who oversees commercial leasing at Essex Crossing. “Otherwise it could be anywhere—it becomes like a shopping mall. It needs to feel like the Lower East Side.” View Article

JUN 1, 2016

Construction on the former SPURA site on the Lower East Side, now known as the Essex Crossing megaproject-to-be, is moving right along, and more details about its various buildings—retail, hospitals, residences, and the like—have been coming out in dribs and drabs.

Now, a new teaser site has launched for the building known as Site One (a.k.a. 242 Broome Street), a SHoP-designed condo that will rise 14 stories when completed. With that comes some new details on the building: It’ll be home to 55 units, a mix of one- to three-bedroom condos, and while pricing information for those units isn’t currently available, a spokesperson for the project confirms that sales are due to launch in early fall.

The building is notable for its amenities, including the bowling alley that’ll be operated by Splitsville Luxury Lanes. It will also be connected to the megaproject’s huge new food bazaar, the Market Line, which will span more than 150,000 square feet over three blocks.

In terms of the design, SHoP’s on the architecture, which is very SHoP-like and will feature champagne-colored aluminum covering the exterior. The interiors will be done by DXA Studio, and per the teaser site, will include “slab marble, blackened steel, [and] warm woods.” Elliman will be in charge of sales once those launch, and the whole shebang is being developed by Delancey Street Associates, a collaborative effort between Taconic, L&M Development, and BFC Partners.
