And let the cantilevering begin.

Not since the Blue building has one piece of architecture so polarized a block. Now on its eastern flank, another eyesore with which to contend.

Under construction the last year and change, the glassy new development at 100 Norfolk Street is starting to really take shape. Crews have been assembling the interlocking steel pieces for months (a high-wire act), employing a scary “crawler crane” above the tenement skyline. Affected neighbors are watchdogs and reported plenty of problems at the project site all along, from falling ladders dangling outside windows to non-permitted after hours work.

As of this writing, the superstructure sits taller than seven stories. But now the real changes are in effect. Here comes the cantilever.

Brought to you by Adam America Real Estate and the Horizon Group (designed by ODA), 100 Norfolk Street will ascend twelve stories and carry 30 units split between studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences (44,000 square-feet). It’ll offer amenities including private and public terraces, bike room, fitness center (with yoga), and auxiliary storage facilities. There is also 11,244 square-feet of commercial real estate split between two stores.

Prices for these palaces range between $800K and over $4 million.

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

Former Red Square Retail Demolished for New Development
