The Essex received an honorable mention in the Mixed-Used Residential category of this year's AN Best of Design Awards.

The Essex is part of Essex Crossing, a new 1.65-million-square-foot development that includes market and affordable housing, senior affordable housing, a 15,000 sq. ft. urban park, a new and expanded Essex Street Market, community facilities, a rooftop urban farm, 280,000 sq. ft. of office space and a diverse mix of retail components.

The building includes a 20-story residential tower rising above a 5-story commercial podium that occupies a full New York City block. The tower includes 195 residential apartments with 50% of the units designated as permanently affordable. The base of the building, at 80 feet in height, transitions the scale of the tower and connects it to the 60- to 80-foot residential buildings of the Lower East Side.
