"While The Essex's unimpeded skyline views already make it a unique product in the neighborhood, its amenities – including the new Essex Street Market and The Market Line, the 14-screen Regal Essex Crossing and four subway lines – truly set it apart from other projects on the market across the city. That our units are already a quarter pre-leased speaks volumes about the building's appeal."
