The Essex Crossing development project is moving ahead at breakneck speed. Over the weekend, the flag was planted on top of 145 Clinton St., also known as site 5 of the nearly 2-million square foot residential and commercial complex.
The building topped out at 15 stories, or 160 feet. It will eventually include 211 apartments (half of them affordable), a 22,000 square foot Planet Fitness and a grocery store yet-to-be-named.
The neighboring building on site 6 topped out in August. The first phase of Essex Crossing is covering four sites. The project in the former Seward Park Urban Renewal Area will eventually create 1,000 apartments and 600,000 square feet of commercial space.
