MARKET LINE, THE LATEST FOOD HALL ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE, TO OPEN FRIDAY

“We have signed deals or are in negotiations on all but two spaces,” Mehra said over e-mail. The Prusik Group is handling commercial leasing for the $1.9 billion development. “We will be announcing new vendors soon that complement the current lineups at the Essex Market and the Market Line.”
The first phase of the Market Line already includes a 200-seat beer garden called Grand Delancey; Nom Wah, a dim sum restaurant; Peoples Wine Shop and Bar; and the meat-focused grocer Schaller & Weber. Also, the food hall/gallery should not be confused with Essex Market, a vendor hall above it.
Market Line is opening in two phases and is expected to comprise 150,000 square feet. The complex will stretch under three new buildings: the residential 125 Delancey St. and 202 Broome St., and the mixed-use 180 Broome. It’s anticipated to be the largest such marketplace citywide, according to Essex Crossing’s development team, which includes Prusik, BFC Partners, L+M Development Partners and Taconic Investment Partners.
