A 12-story development project at 208 Delancey Street is finally in motion, following a string of stop-work orders that froze the undertaking last summer.

The development, which will offer up 69 condominium units and an 8,352-square-foot community facility upon completion, is now in motion and sprouting above the plywood threshold, Bowery Boogie reports. Still, the Department of Buildings remains in pursuit, with two more stop-work orders levied in recent months regarding the inspection of concrete usage.

A group of 53 Chinese-American investors dubbed the Delancey Bridge Tower Group picked up the Lower East Side corner site, formerly home of T & J Auto Repairs, for $8.5 million in 2011. Flushing-based architect Michael Kang is behind the project, which combines 206 and 208 Delancey Street, as well as 49 and 51 Pitt Street. [Bowery Boogie]Julie Strickland
