Cantilevering Begins at 12-Story 100 Norfolk Street Condos

Posted June 16, 2016 at 5:00 am

And let the cantilevering begin. Not since the Blue building has one piece of architecture so polarized a block. Now on its eastern flank, another eyesore with which to contend. Under construction the last year and change, the glassy new development at 100 Norfolk Street is starting to really take shape. Crews have been assembling […]

ODA’s Cantilvered 100 Norfolk Street Ascends to 6-Story Height

Last modified January 19, 2016 at 4:26 pm

​Off the rails for the majority of last summer, the luxury development at 100 Norfolk Street is back on track. And in a big way. Blame a scary stop-work order for the hiatus, levied due to partial collapse of the framing from concrete pouring. Not to mention the various after-hours work days without proper variances […]

Posted April 27, 2015 at 9:21 am

From dairy to discount mattresses, and now urgent care, the former Ratner’s restaurant on Delancey Street has surely seen it all. Build-out finally concluded at the end of last week despite a previous stop-work order for dangerous site conditions. As of today, though, CityMD is now ready to serve the neighborhood. It’s the first CityMD […]

Ratner’s Ghost Signage on Delancey is Gone; CityMD Urgent Care Coming Soon

Posted April 2, 2015 at 5:14 am

For one week, Lower East Siders had a helping of nostalgia thanks to some great ghost signage. Ratner’s made a brief return during the ongoing renovation work at 138 Delancey Street. Its classic cursive, sans red neons, was unveiled after workers removed the Sleepy’s Mattress fixture. But now the marquee is completely gone … and […]

The Return of Ratner’s on Delancey Street

Last modified March 26, 2015 at 7:51 am

Well, sort of. Construction at the former Sleepy’s mattress center on Delancey Street uncovered some classic ghost signage. Of course, this location was previously the home of Ratner’s, the long-running kosher dairy restaurant that folded over a decade ago. Shadows of the once-illustrious red neon are now clearly visible, thanks to the removal of the […]

Urgent Care Center to Open in Sleepy’s Mattress Space on Delancey

Last modified March 25, 2015 at 12:20 pm

Back in August, we filed a report on the closure of the Sleepy’s mattress outpost at 138 Delancey (formerly Ratner’s). The shutter lasted only until Labor Day, though, when the store reopened to capitalize on holiday sales. It would remain in business for the next six months, with the RKF leasing sign hanging in the […]

100 Norfolk Offers ’38 Units and 100 Reasons’ to Cringe

Posted August 20, 2014 at 6:04 am

The project site at 100 Norfolk Street now boasts branded plywood wrapping for the eventual mess of construction to debut here shortly. Helmed by Adam America Real Estate and the Horizon Group, the 12-story development now carries the cringeworthy tagline of “38 units 100 reasons” to be here. A new website also just went live, but […]

Sleepy’s Closes Its Longtime Outpost in the Former Ratner’s on Delancey Street

Posted August 11, 2014 at 9:38 am

Well, this is rather unexpected. The Sleepy’s outpost at 138 Delancey Street closed its business operations over the weekend. Twin printouts taped to the front doors indicate as much, steering customers to the location at the Red Square strip mall on East Houston. We called and confirmed that the closure is indeed permanent. The so-called […]

Demolition Nearly Complete at Future Cantilevered Condo on Norfolk Street

Posted October 30, 2013 at 6:10 am

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 […]

Posted June 10, 2013 at 6:00 am

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.
