Health Clinic Seeks 10-Year Lease in Essex Market Building

Next month, Community Board 3’s Seward Park redevelopment committee will tackle a thorny issue: whether the Essex Street Market should be demolished and relocated in a new building south of Delancey. There are four market buildings, two of which are mostly vacant. Besides the public market, there’s only one other major tenant.

The Downtown Health Center, run by the non-profit Community Healthcare Network, has been a tenant in Essex Market Building A (at Stanton Street) for the last three years.  The full-service clinic, serving the Lower East Side since 1971, moved from a much smaller facility on Ludlow Street.
