The Crossroads

The Crossroads

10 Rutgers Street, New York, NY

Located at the East Broadway stop of the F train, where the Lower East Side meets Chinatown, the Crossroads is an eight story rental apartment building completed in 2000. With 83 units and 8,200 square feet of ground floor commercial space divided into six retail stores, the building features amenities such as an attended lobby, a landscaped rear courtyard, and a fitness center. The apartments feature hardwood flooring and individually controlled heating and air conditioning. There are two ground-floor apartments with private yards, and six penthouse apartments feature private outdoor terraces.

Hudson purchased the development site, formerly a parking lot, from the adjoining St. Teresa’s Roman Catholic Church, along with additional air rights. The sale enabled the parish to make urgent repairs to their historic church, which had been severely damaged by fire. Designed by SLCE Architects, the building the design features large windows and decorative precast masonry details.

Retail tenants include a pharmacy, a café, electronics stores, a clothing boutique and a beauty salon. Chase Community Development (now JPMorgan Chase) provided construction financing, and ABS Partners Real Estate LLC participated as an equity investor. The building received a 10-year real estate tax exemption under NYC’s 421-a program.
