Leasing launched on Wednesday for 142 apartments at the Lower East Side’s Essex Crossing development. The Artisan, located at 180 Broome Street, is the largest building at the nine-site project and contains office and retail space, as well as access to the ground-floor Market Line. Pricing starts at $3,000/month for studios, $4,000/month for one-bedrooms,$6,000/month for two-bedrooms, and $8,000 for three-bedrooms.

Designed by Handel Architects, the 26-story tower includes 19 stories of residences above a five-story commercial podium that measures a full block. The Artisan’s facade of oversized frames is a nod to the trussed structure within the nearby Williamsburg Bridge, according to the architects.

The tower’s 263 apartments sit on floors six through 26; 121 of the units are income-restricted and a lottery launched earlier this year for apartments that range from $562/month studios to $3,770/month three-bedrooms.

Units feature stainless steel appliances, full-height stone countertops and backsplashes, in-unit washer and dryers, and hardwood floors. Some apartments come with a private terrace. The lobby and lounge of the Artisan, named for the neighborhood’s artistic heritage, will feature original work from artists Aaron De La Cruz and Logan Hicks.

Amenities at the Artisan include a landscaped patio, a fitness center, lounge, children’s playroom, and direct access to the Market Line, the city’s largest food hall, and the Broome Street Gardens, the indoor park located in an atrium above the market.

Developed by joint venture Delancey Street Associates, the Essex Crossing development spans nearly two million square feet across several blocks on the Lower East Side.

“Essex Crossing is well on its way to being one of New York City’s most exciting places to live, and residents of The Artisan will be right at the heart of the action,” Isaac Henderson, Managing Director at L+M Development Partners, said. “While The Artisan’s unimpeded skyline views already make it a unique product in the neighborhood, its amenities – including direct connections to The Market Line, Essex Market, and four subway lines – truly set it apart from other projects on the market.”

The site’s first condo building at 242 Broome Street hit the market in September 2016, with market-rate units starting at $1.275 million. One Essex Crossing, which sits next to the Artisan, is expected to launch sales at the 83-unit building soon. In total, the development will bring over 1,000 new residences and 350,000 square feet of office space, and 300,000 square feet of retail to the site by 2024.

In addition to Market Line and Essex Market access, other perks of the development include a Trader Joe’s, Target, the International Center for Photography, Regal Cinemas, the Gutter bowling alley, and Essex Crossing Park.

Douglas Elliman New Market Development is the leasing agent for the Artisan. Both virtual and in-person tours of the building are available.
