Demolition Permits Filed for 100 Norfolk; Cantilevered Condos Coming Soon

[Photo: ODA Architects]It wasn’t just another bad dream. Hell naw. Those cantilevered condos are most certainly happening over at 100 Norfolk Street, steps from that other (Blue) monstrosity. Peas in a pod they’ll be.

Permits were filed with the DOB at the end of April for “full demolition of 2-story building,” so now it’s only a matter of time before this space become a construction zone.

You’ll recall that the Lower East Side property changed hands last year for $8.8 million, at which time plans were announced for a 12-story condo-plex. Those visions were put to paper back in February when ODA Architecture released the renderings for the 44,000 square-foot development. The glass mess is to sport thirty-eight residences and private and public terraces. It’s the brainchild of Adam America Real Estate, which is “an entrepreneurial real estate development and investment group which invests its own funds as well as funds provided by local and international high net worth individuals.”

100 Norfolk Street was previously owned by Ratner’s, and once functioned as the refrigeration space and offices for the legendary restaurant. It’s also worth noting that another of Ratner’s holdings, the parking lot for the restaurant, eventually sprouted Blue condo. History is oftentimes a mindfuck.
