115 Norfolk Banner Announcement

Posted on: November 16th, 2010 at 6:27 am by

115 Norfolk Street wants you! Over five years after building plans first surfaced, and four months since the scaffold removal, the so-called Son of THOR is finally nearing the finish line. Hammer in hand.  Last week, a new banner was strung between the second floor window panes, advertising some details of the Grzywinski + Pons-designed condo development.

Apparently these “unique condominium residences” are exclusively brokered by Ariel Tirosh at Prudential Douglas Elliman. Available apartments include one- and two-bedroom units, as well as three-bedroom penthouses. Even though the banner announcement suggests immediate occupancy, more conclusive information, such as price and square-footage, is still unknown. Meanwhile, there is a teaser website for the glassy new 115 Norfolk, but it remains in “coming soon” mode.

Given the images stitched together on the footer of the website, their message is loud and clear – disregard the past in favor of the new Lower East Side. It depicts a selection of some of the more high-profile buildings erected in the last five years.
