City Buys Lot for Planned Kensington School


The School Construction Authority recently purchased the empty lot at 701-11 Caton Avenue, between East 7th and 8th streets, where a new school is planned. According to public records, the SCA spent $8.8 million on the property. According to the Kensington Area Resident/Merchant Alliance’s blog, there was a public hearing in February for the proposed pre-K through 8th grade school and the school is likely in the design phase right now. Plans call for a 750-seat school that’s around 20,000 square feet. GMAP

  • Huh. I seem to recall hearing it would be a nursing home and was owned by one of the Hasidic communities, but that rumor was years ago. Wonder if this will make it harder for Immaculate Heart of Mary to lease out their soon-to-be-shuttered grammar school building on nearby Ft Hamilton Pkway.
