This past summer, steel beam construction began on the 12-story, 38-unit condo building planned at 100 Norfolk Street, on the Lower East Side, but the project ended up stalling out for a number of months until crews recently were able to get back on site. The structure is now rising again and currently four stories up, courtesy of photos by Tectonic. The 53,949 square-foot structure includes 11,244 square feet of commercial space, which was marketed as two units. Five residential units remain for sale and completion is expected in late 2016. ODA Architecture is designing and Adam America Real Estate, Naveh Shuster Group, and Horizon Group are developing.
Early in 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 37-unit residential building at 50 Clinton Street, on the Lower East Side, and later that year, DHA Capital acquired the development site for $28 million.

Issac & Stern Architects is designing the project, which will also include 1,836 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The residential units will be condos and will average 1,023 square feet apiece. All but eight are in contract and completion is scheduled for the second half of 2016.
