Broome Street Development
The Broome Street Development is a comprehensive master plan compromised of two mixed-use buildings totaling approximately 400,000sf facing Norfolk, Broome, and Suffolk Streets in the Lower East Side, across from the new Essex Crossing development.
The first building will be a cultural heritage center surrounded by the preserved remnants of the Beth Hamedrash Hagodol (BHH) synagogue, with a 16-story mid-rise above, consisting of 115 low-income senior housing units.
The second building will be a 30-story mixed-use contextual high-rise, which will serve as the flagship headquarters for the Chinese-American Planning Council (CPC), the nation’s largest Asian-American social services organization. Complementary to the headquarters will be neighborhood retail and rental homes, including 25% set aside for permanent affordability. The proposed design relates to the existing neighborhood context of historic Lower East Side low rise buildings and the existing Seward Park towers.
Together, the two buildings represent more than 40% permanent affordability. Construction is slated to commence in 2020.*
