In the late 1950’s, jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins rented an apartment and honed his art in a tenement building at 145 Clinton Street on the Lower East Side. Mr. Rollins has since moved upstate, and the original building was torn down in preparation for construction on mega-development Essex Crossing, but his connection to the neighborhood has not been forgotten: The new rental rising at 145 Clinton Street will be named The Rollins in his honor, and a teaser site plays up the connection with jazz music. Leasing of the market-rate apartments will start in early January 2018, and a spring housing lottery was indicative of interest: Over 90,000 people applied for 104 affordable units.

The building will have some of the priciest rents in the neighborhood; market-rate units will start at $3,150 for studios; $4,550/month for one-bedrooms; $5,800/month for two-bedrooms; and $8,450/month for three-bedrooms. Amenities will include a yoga room, lounge, pet-grooming station, children’s playroom, bike room, and rooftop terrace with grills and spectacular skyline views. A 15,000-square-foot park designed by West 8 is also planned for the site, and retail tenants will include Target and Trader Joe’s.

The Rollins is the latest news for Essex Crossing. The International Center for Photography will reunite its museum and school in 242 Broome Street, where the condos on top are already 50% sold. Over 100,000 square feet of green space is coming to the area, as is Regal Cinemas, Splitsville Lanes bowling alley, and the world-famous Essex Street Market, which will anchor The Market Line.
