Earlier today, there was a big response from the fire department after a construction worker fell into a shallow trench at one of the Essex Crossing development sites.
It happened at 242 Broome St., site 1 of the large project now taking shape on the former Seward Park urban renewal sites. According to a spokesperson for the development consortium, Delancey Street Associates, the worker suffered minor injuries. The fire department was immediately alerted, said the spokesperson.
Work has resumed on the project. The 15-story building under construction on site 1 will include condominium apartments, a bowling alley and other commercial businesses.
