The Essex Crossing mega-development hit another milestone this week, with its seventh building topping out at the Lower East Side site. The mixed-use tower at 202 Broome Street includes 83 luxury condominiums, 175,000 square feet of office space, and 34,500 square feet of retail space. Designed by CetraRuddy, the building joins 242 Broome as the nine-site development’s second condo building.

Class A office space spans floors two through five, with the condos above on floors six through 14. The ground floor of 202 Broome will feature 10,000 square feet of retail, as well as a portion of expansive food fall The Market Line, which will open in early November, and the Broome Street Gardens, an indoor park located in an atrium above the market.

Charles Bendit, the co-CEO of Taconic Investment Partners, one developer of five that makes up the Delancey Street Associates, called 202 Broome Street “one of Essex Crossing’s most dynamic sites.”

“202 Broome Street exemplifies the campus-like feel that’s taking shape at Essex Crossing–a place where workers in cutting-edge office space will have the city’s largest marketplace and four subways just steps away, and residents above will enjoy top-flight amenities and incredible views of the Midtown skyline,” Bendit said.

Pricing has not been released for the 83 condos, but will have “thoughtful layouts, expansive views in all directions, and a generous amenity program,” according to a press release. Amenities include a fitness center, lounge, and terrace space. Sales are expected to launch next spring.

Office space, which will be dubbed Essex Crossing Office West, will feature floor plates between 35,000 and 52,000 square feet, floor-to-ceiling windows, beam-free ceilings up to 13-feet, and tenant perks like bike rooms with showers and outdoor terraces.

Construction of 202 Broome is expected to wrap up late next year. The entirety of the project, which includes nearly 1,100 units of housing, will be finished by 2024.
