A few tips came in with word that 23 Caton Place, the long-stalled condo building, is active again. The Department of Buildings approved full permits and the architect is still Karl Fischer. Another tipster noticed that construction workers are busy on-site and plumbing is going in. There still are not many details available on the construction timeline, the new property owner or the design of the building. Public records do not list any new ownership here, despite the development going up for foreclosure in the fall. But as Windsor Terrace Patch noted last week, Community Board Seven plans to shed some light on the subject. CB7 will hold a meeting on February 6th at 6:30 pm at 312 Coney Island Avenue addressing the project. A representative from the Hudson Companies also plans to discuss the impending residential project at 22 Caton Place. And representatives from the city’s School Construction Authority will also share an update on the future site of P.S./I.S. 437 which is under construction at 701-711 Caton Avenue.
