Located just South of the Essex Crossing / Seward Park Urban Renewal Development in the Lower East Side, Broome Street Development is a large, new, mixed-use, mixed-income development that houses a variety of critical community and cultural heritage organizations based in the Lower East Side.

The project is comprised of two mixed-use buildings of 460,000 total square feet that will contain 495 units of market rate, affordable, and senior housing.

The Suffolk building provides 366 mixed-market rate and affordable units in a 30-story volume. The Norfolk building provides 115 affordable apartments for seniors in a 16-story volume, including a full floor suite with a lounge, game room, yoga/activity room, and a social services office. Additional project amenities include a community room and outdoor roof terraces, with a rooftop pool.

Design concept for the project originated as the intersection of two dominant building typologies in the Lower East Side: the 6 story walk-up tenement, and the ‘tower-in-the-park’ typology. This conceptual dialogue is expressed by a stacking of 6-story volumes – further subdivided into 3-story groupings.

Community and Cultural Heritage Programming

The Chinese-American Planning Council’s new headquarters will be housed in the base of the building. This new facility will serve as the organization’s central office, from which they will provide educational, social, and economic empowerment services for Chinese-American, immigrant, and low-income communities in New York City. Programming will include youth services and workforce development, and a large multi-purpose space will allow for events and community gatherings. The Beth Hamedrash Hagodol synagogue will feature a new worship space incorporated into the mixed-use development. A cultural heritage center will facilitate research and education and spaces will be open to the public with curated programming and community events.

"[This] groundbreaking demonstrates the City’s commitment to work with dedicated partners, like the Chinese-American Planning Council, to create and preserve affordable housing, while also opening up critical community spaces, like the cultural heritage space for the Beth Hamedrash Hagodol Synagogue (BHH). In particular, we honor our aging population by dedicating over half of the development’s homes to our senior New Yorkers. This prioritization is especially important given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on this already vulnerable community."
