CB 7 Buildings and Construction Committee Meeting
Wednesday, February 6th, 6:30 p.m.

New and ongoing construction work at 701-711 Caton Avenue, planned construction work at 22 Caton Place, and activity at 23 Caton Place will be the topics of a meeting co-hosted by Councilmember Brad Lander’s office and Community Board 7′s Buildings and Construction Committee.

The School Construction Authority will update the community on the construction of PS/IS 437 at 701-711 Caton Avenue, a kindergarten through  8th grade school that will serve 750 students.

Hudson Properties, the new developer for 22 Caton Place, will give a presentation about the new development and the scope of construction of this long-stalled site. The article "Caton Place Neighbors Jeer 8-Story Building," published in January 2006, details the beginnings of the controversial and troubled saga of this property.

23 Caton Place is active again. Its architect is Karl Fisher. "Foreclosure for 23 Caton Place Development," published a few months ago, links to additional informative articles. Councilmember Lander's office is working to contact the architect or the owner to get some facts in time for the meeting.

Meeting location:

International Baptist Church
312 Coney Island Avenue, entrance on Caton Place
Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, New York
