We're a little embarrassed to admit that Brownstoner completely scooped us on this one. We noticed several months ago that a new building was going up on Caton, but we failed to note progress and keep our loyal readers informed.
Now for our commentary.
This building ain't pretty, which is unfortunate and somewhat mind boggling. Why? Because developers manage to build and sell reasonably attractive condos in the rougher parts of Williamsburg and altogether rough Bushwick, yet the folks developng our hood can't get their aesthetics together. Other than 384 Maple, all new buildings in the area are downright ugly. We fear for what will be built on the site of the former Planet PLG House (see below). It would really suck if the one and only new development on Ocean Ave turned out ot be a Fedders House.
As everything sells at the right price, the condos on Caton will sell... to people who don't mind living on a crappy block that also happens to be a truck route.
