‘Tis the season for disrobing … for several neighborhood project sites. The latest is the 12-story cantilevered condo development at 100 Norfolk Street, which began the piecemeal removal of scaffolding yesterday.

Underway since early 2013, the multimillion-dollar residential development rivals its neighbor Blue for most assaulting on the eyes. (Guess that’s what happens when there’s “little worth preserving on the Lower East Side.”) It topped out back in September, shortly after the precarious “crawler crane” vacated the block.

Brought to you by Adam America Real Estate and the Horizon Group (designed by ODA), 100 Norfolk Street sits at twelve stories and will carry 30 units split between studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences (44,000 square-feet). Tenant amenities include private and public terraces, bike room, fitness center (with yoga), and auxiliary storage facilities. There are also two commercial units on the ground level.

As of today, there are still three available units, include the $4.9 million penthouse.

You’ll recall that the Lower East Side property changed hands in 2012 for $8.8 million. 100 Norfolk previously housed the refrigeration units and offices of Ratner’s.
