In November 2019, The New York Times dubbed Essex Crossing “the anti-Hudson Yards” for its Lower East Side address, connection to the community, commitment to affordable housing, and contemporary yet contextually sensitive architecture. But more recently, there is another reason: While the coronavirus pandemic has raised doubts about the future of Hudson Yards, Essex Crossing is not just surviving, but thriving. 242 Broome Street, the mega-development’s first condominium, sold the last of its 55 units in February 2021, and closings are coming in at an average price of $2,064 per square foot. On the rental front, the 142-unit The Artisan is now 50% leased.

"Our renters and buyers alike recognize the added value of living at Essex Crossing - from state-of-the-art amenities to the city’s best marketplace and multiple subway lines right at their doorstep” - Ben Baccash, Vice President, Taconic Partners

It has been speculated that the sales momentum of 242 Broome Street might carry over to One Essex Crossing, another condominium in the complex. The building was designed inside and out by CetraRuddy, and interiors feature oversized windows, ceilings up to 10 feet high, wide plank European oak flooring with a warm custom stain, and custom-designed kitchens with warm palettes, honed Dolomiti countertops and backsplashes, and Miele appliances. Select apartments have private terraces, and all residents have access to amenities like a sunroom, fitness center, playroom, and sixth-floor garden with grilling, seating, and recreation areas. Closings are expected to commence later this year, and remaining availabilities start at $890K for studios, $1.265 million for one-beds, $2.215 million for two-beds, and $2.995 million for three-beds.

Down the street from One Essex Crossing, The Artisan’s design by Handel Architects was inspired by the nearby Williamsburg Bridge. Nine studio through one-bedroom units were recently outfitted with space-saving interiors, and all apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows, white oak floors, in-unit washer/dryers, and kitchens with full-height stone countertops and stainless steel appliances. Amenities include an attended lobby with green wall, a mail and package room, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a lounge, and a landscaped roof patio and sky deck with grills and sweeping skyline views. Current availabilities start at $2,290/month for studios, $3,888/month for one-beds, $5,580/month for two-beds, and $7,611/month for three-beds (all prices net effective to reflect two months free rent on a 13-month lease).
Both One Essex Crossing and The Artisan offer direct access to The Market Line, a bazaar-like marketplace spanning three city blocks and offering an eclectic selection of locally sourced vendors and restaurants. Additional Essex Crossing retail offerings include Target, the largest Trader Joe’s on the East Coast, and local fixture Essex Market. The Regal Cinemas in The Essex is expected to reopen on May 7; in the meantime, locals can visit The Gutter L.E.S., the International Center of Photography, and abundant new outdoor space.
By the end of 2021, Essex Crossing is expected to be more than 90 percent open. The full project is expected to be completed in 2024, and will ultimately include 1,079 new housing units, 350,000 square feet of Class A office space, and 300,000 square feet of retail space.
