L+M is busy further south as well. The developer won the contract, with a handful of other firms, to build the 1.9 million-square-foot Seward Park urban-renewal project near the Williamsburg Bridge. Dubbed Essex Crossing, the project will have a mix of residential and retail including a bowling alley, movie theater and market. [BuzzBuzzHome]Mark Maurer
