Over by the Williamsburg Bridge, the embattled Delancey Bridge Tower is back on track. Well, kinda.

Last summer, the new 12-story development in the works at 208 Delancey hit a quagmire, and went dormant for months. A pair of strict stop-work orders were levied at the time, and progress was frozen with naught but a foundation and a few steel beams in place.

Fast forward to present, and that construction hiatus is history. There has been plenty of work here of late. The superstructure is way above the plywood threshold, measuring roughly four stories in height.

But the DOB is still hot on their tail. Two more stop-work orders were levied in the last couple months (regarding inspection of concrete usage), but partially rescinded to allow some construction to proceed.

The Delancey Bridge Tower will, upon completion, rise 12 stories and offer 69 condo apartments and a 8,352 square-foot community facility. Architect Michael Kang is on board, and it’ll look something like this:

This address previously housed the T&J Auto Repair shop. The family that owned the mechanic had previously purchased the four other lots on which this tower will rise – 206 and 208 Delancey, 49 and 51 Pitt. They cashed out for $8.48 million when a consortium of 53 Chinese-American investors purchased the properties.
