ODA’s Cantilvered 100 Norfolk Street Ascends to 6-Story Height

​Off the rails for the majority of last summer, the luxury development at 100 Norfolk Street is back on track. And in a big way. Blame a scary stop-work order for the hiatus, levied due to partial collapse of the framing from concrete pouring. Not to mention the various after-hours work days without proper variances that went unchecked.

The edict was rescinded back in September to pave the way for resumption. So, for various times this fall, Norfolk Street had been closed to traffic to allow for the assembly of a skyscraping crane, and to hoist the first few building blocks of this cantilevering monstrosity. In fact, metal braces were affixed to the adjoining rooftop (Solid Gold Jewelry) in anticipation of the overhang. New sidewalk bridge is also in place to help facilitate the work.

It’s hard to miss the semi-permanent tower crane that’s been sitting just north of Delancey for the better part of a month. Its presence helped the new development ascend to six stories, half its target height. (The superstructure begins to cantilever at around the ninth floor.)

As for the residential component, 100 Norfolk is nearly sold out; there are five apartments remaining. Prices for these palaces range between $800K and over $4 million. Yet, one of the prized penthouse units went to Taiwanese-born real estate investor Emma Hsieh for $7 million, setting a record price for the neighborhood. (Hsieh is the owner of nearby basement clubs Nitecap and 151). There is also 11,244 square-feet of commercial real estate split between two stores.

You’ll recall that the Lower East Side property changed hands in June 2012 for $8.8 million. 100 Norfolk previously housed the refrigeration units and offices of Ratner’s.
