Work is moving along swiftly on Essex Crossing’s senior housing building at 175 Delancey Street (site 6). Since we last checked in with the project in April this year, the structure has come up significantly, a new construction site photo by Joel Raskin has revealed.
This particular building is being designed by Dattner Architects, and plans here also call for a medical facility run by New York University (NYU), a coffee shop, and a tiered roof garden. The 15-story building will have a total of 100 apartments.
The overall Essex Crossing project is comprised of nine sites spread out on about six acres of land and will include residential, commercial, and community spaces. The project is being developed by a consortium known as Delancey Street Associates which is comprised of L+M Development Partners, Taconic Investment Partners, and BFC Partners.
Plans for the megaproject’s 150,000 square foot market were revealed last fall, and the first set of condos here, at the SHoP-designed 242 Broome Street site, are expected to hit the market this fall.
