New York, NY – Not to be outdone by the West Side’s Hudson Yards, the LES will break ground this year on a massive redevelopment project by The Williamsburg Bridge, dubbed Essex Crossing, that will forever alter the neighborhood. A glorious 9-building, 6-acre stretch of land with nearly 2 million square feet of residential, commercial and community space will be set along Essex & Delancey Streets. Mostly vacant since 1967, Essex Crossing is among the most significant urban renewal developments in the history of New York City. The finished product will feature mixed-income housing with retail, restaurants, office space, parks, a movie theater, a bowling alley and even an Andy Warhol museum. Construction will continue thru 2024.
