Essex Crossing’s Newest Addition Features Space-Saving Designs
Delancey Street Associates, the partnership developing the Essex Crossing mixed-use project on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, has outfitted 10 apartments at The Artisan at Essex Crossing with space-saving designs from Ori, the provider of multifunctional room creation solutions. The Artisan launched leasing in August 2020 and is now 40% leased.
“While The Artisan’s unimpeded skyline views already make it a unique product in the neighborhood, its amenities – including the innovative design solutions offered by Ori – truly set it apart from other projects on the market,” said Jayda Shanks, project manager at L+M Development Partners, one of the joint venture partners on Essex Crossing.
At full buildout, the $2-billion Essex Crossing project will include 1,079 units of housing along with 350,000 square feet of Class A office and 300,000 square feet of retail. The project’s nine sites on six acres had sat mostly vacant since 1967.
