100 Norfolk Street will soon be all glassified

Get ready for more glass. Cantilevered glass. It’s coming.

Permits were filed back in June of this year, but now demolition of 100 Norfolk Street is well underway, advancing at quite a clip. Indeed, most of the two-story building is now simply dust in a curbside dumpster. It shouldn’t be long before all remaining evidence of the building is excised.

Once cleared, this parcel just north of Delancey will sprout twelve floors of upscale residential living that cantilevers over its neighbors.

As previously reported, the 44,000 square-foot project is to include thirty-eight residences, plus private and public terraces. It’s essentially the prelude to SPURA across the street, and should be completed in winter 2015.

100 Norfolk Street was previously owned by Ratner’s, and once housed both refrigeration space and offices for the legendary kosher-dairy restaurant.
