Lawlessness seems to thrive these days at the corner of Norfolk and Delancey Streets. On one hand, you’ve got controversial landlord Samy Mahfar who is converting #102 to luxury; right next door at #100 is the 12-story cantilevered condo project by Adam America which commissions construction jobs after hours without proper permits. Between the two, neighbors aren’t thrilled.

For the second week running, a team of contractors worked after hours to connect sewage lines to the aforementioned development. Still no variances filed with the Department of Buildings. We are told that the reason for the encore was confusion over the number of pipes that needed installation. An additional one was required.

What will rise at 100 Norfolk

Our tipster sent a communique which noted:

We’re finding DOB and some of the elected offices here to be way too quiet on this subject matter.  We’re begging for help at this point.  We realize that landlords and real estate developers pay to quickly process permits.  What is going on is not OK.  They’re skirting the law and making DOB, the elected offices, and the tenants look like idiots.
