Coming up on Thursday, Dec. 5, the developers of Essex Crossing and community collaborators will participate in a panel discussion (“Private Means to Public Ends”) on the Lower East Side about how the mega-project came to fruition.
The panel is sponsored by the Van Alen Institute and will take place in the community room of 175 Delancey St., the first Essex Crossing building that opened (in January 2018). Speakers include Donald Capoccia of BFC Partners, one of the primary Essex Crossing developers; Isaac Henderson, project manager for Delancey Street Associates, the development consortium; Dana Getman of SHoP Architects; Dominic Berg, who led Community Board 3’s planning for the development sites in the former Seward Park Urban Renewal Area; and Robert Cordero of Grand Street Settlement, Essex Crossing’s lead community partner. The discussion will be led by James Russell, an architecture critic who has called Essex Crossing “a model mega-development.”
The panel talk begins at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 5. Click here for more information and to RSVP for the event.
