Here’s What 33 Caton Place Will Look Like

33-caton-place-rendering-022514

The huge rental building — shrouded in mystery until its owner, Sam Boymelgreen, was revealed last week — at 33 Caton Place in Windsor Terrace will have what looks like a gray brick and rusted steel exterior, judging by this rendering a reader found on the architect’s website. While the materials and massing look a little bit dark and brooding in the rendering, we think the materials are interesting and it could be appealing from the street in person. The large street-level windows look pedestrian-friendly.

The architects are DJ Associates Architect PC and Luca Andrisani Architects. The 126-unit building, called The Kestrel, will have a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. “Amenities will include a gym, spa, media room, business center, lounge, child playroom, attended parking, rooftop recreation spaces and concierge service,” said the architect’s site. As we mentioned last week, leasing will start in April.

What do you think of the design?

  • Isn’t it a bit of a stretch to define the cladding as Corten steel just from that that rendering?

    • As we say in the story, we’re guessing based on the rendering. If you blow it up, you can see it looks like metal and is part of the window surrounds. The construction site photos from last week show the gray brick in place. Or are you saying it may not be trademarked Corten? Will change that in the story.

  • The biggest aspect of this and the building across the street is the new services which will spring up in response to the new population. Because of the large roads which surround this block, all of the markets, restaurants, and coffee shops are about 10 minutes away. Coney Island ave would be perfect for more businesses.
