In the past few days, workers have been installing the sidewalk surrounding Essex Crossing Site 5. The photo posted above was taken by Robin Schatell.
The 15-story building on the northwest corner of Grand and Clinton streets will include more than 200 mixed-income rental apartments, a Trader Joe’s in the basement, a 22,500 square foot Target store on the second floor and other ground floor retail businesses. It’s one of four Essex Crossing buildings set to open next year.
According to an email update from Delancey Street Associates, the development consortium, sidewalk work will continue on Grand Street this week. Work crews are also installing portions of the storefront facades on Clinton and Grand streets. On the Broome Street side of Site 5, work is progressing on a 15,000 square foot publicly accessible park. Soil will start to go in next week.
