LOWER EAST SIDE — Essex Crossing's developers are holding a community construction meeting next week to provide locals with information about the project’s progress and available construction jobs.
The developers, Delancey Street Associates, will meet with peple in the neighborhood at the Grand Street Settlement community room, located at 80 Pitt St., on Jan. 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., according to a flier posted on Community Board 3’s website.
The project, which is currently under construction, plans to bring 1.9 million square feet of new residential, commercial and community space to nine blocks near the Williamsburg Bridge.
Confirmed retail tenants include Regal Cinemas, Planet Fitness and Splitsville Luxury Lanes, a bowling alley and restaurant, the developer previously announced. Half of the 1,000 residential units planned for the development will be set aside for affordable housing.
During the first part of the meeting, Delancey Street Associates will provide construction updates, including the project’s timeline, information about each specific site and the ways the work could affect the community.
Afterwards, the developers plan to talk about construction jobs for locals at the work sites, as well as job training programs. Information about housing will not be discussed at the meeting.
