Essex Crossing wins 2022 ULI Global Awards for Excellence

Located on New York City's Lower East Side, these sites were formerly part of the city’s slum clearance programs, which evicted hundreds of tenants. Essex Crossing is now a vibrant mixed-income development, anchored by a new and expanded Essex Street Market.

For this remarkable advancement of mixed-use developments in New York City, the Urban Land Institute has awarded Essex Crossing the Global Award for Excellence. We are proud to have designed two significant projects in this development: The Essex, which includes mixed-income residences, a cinema, Essex Street Market, and the largest urban farm in Manhattan; and The Artisan, with mixed-income residences above an office podium. Both sites are connected below grade by The Market Line. The jury appreciated that Essex Crossing represents a years-long community planning process that has strengthened an historic neighborhood and stands as a testament to how thoughtful public-private partnerships and placemaking can acknowledge past wrongs and revitalize a neighborhood.
