107 Norfolk Street Exterior Renovations

Posted on: February 11th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

107 Norfolk Street has yet to reel in a big fish since Tonic vacated the premises four years ago.  Two nightlife establishments were baited within the last six months, but both ultimately failed. First was Paris-based Dans Le Noir, the blind dining concept which appeared before Community Board 3 in August. Their application was actually approved, but ownership decided to open in Tribeca instead.  Inwood Latin spot Mamajuana Cafe submitted its application for the space shortly thereafter, but was denied [PDF] by the board back in November for complaint history and being in a resolution area.

So, what better time than now for some cosmetic repair action? As of this week, the stout one-story structure is completely obscured by sidewalk scaffolding and plywood. DOB permits filed earlier this month reveal the following changes:

REBUILD PARAPETS, REMOVE AND REPLACE ROOF MEMBRANE AND PATCH STUCCO ON FACADE AS PER PLANS FILED. NO CHANGE IN USE, EGRESS OR OCCUPANCY.

It all makes sense.  This uber-luxurious block of Norfolk Street can’t be having a drab looking building in its midst. That would just be poor form.
