In January, we reported that Delancey Street Associates (DSA) closed on a loan for the Handel Architects-designed 180 Broome Street (site 4), which, if you didn't know by now, is part of the massive 3-phase project called Essex Crossing. Today, we have a bird's-eye view of the site, where construction has begun. This marks the sixth site to begin construction in the nine-site complex.
While 180 Broome Street represents just one building, it will have more residential units than any other Essex Crossing site in the project and is the only with commercial offices. Upon completion, it will have 263 rentals (142 market-rate and 121 affordable), a residential amenity floor, 175,000 square feet of Class A office space, and 27,000 square feet of retail space – including a portion of the Market Line, which announced its first vendors last month and will open its first phase in 115 Delancey Street this year. 180 Broome Street is scheduled to open in 2020 – four years before all of Essex Crossing is expected to be completed.

According to Handel Architects, who recently released a bevy of new renderings, the design inspiration for 180 Broome Street was driven by the building’s proximity to the Williamsburg Bridge. “Oversized concrete frames define the building façade, acting as a reinterpretation of the trussed structure within the Williamsburg Bridge and framing a pattern of large windows that provide unobstructed, panoramic views from the interior of the office space and the residential tower.”
Lower floors will have large expanses of glass to allow more natural light to stream into the Market Line’s two-story concourse and the retail spaces below. Additionally, topping the large office floors will be a "park-like terrace" measuring 1/3 an acre. The building will be positioned between two green spaces: the new Essex Crossing Park that fronts The Rollins at 145 Clinton Street and a two-block-long urban plaza along Delaney Street
