Permits have been filed for an eight-story commercial facility at 72 Caton Place, in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn. The site is half a block away from the southern end of Prospect Park. Six blocks away is the Fort Hamilton Parkway, serviced by the F and G trains. Bobby Dweck of JEMB Realty will be responsible for the design.

The Commercial Observer reported in February 2015 that a $126 million, nine-story residential building would be built on the site, with 20% of the units made available as affordable housing. Suzuki Capital and Gothic Development Group would be responsible for the development. That proposal did not materialize though, and the site was later bought by JEMB for $16.2 million.

The 109-foot tall structure will yield 157,600 square feet for a self-storage facility. Two parking spaces will also be created.

Frank G. Relf Architect will be responsible for the design, and completion is expected in two years.

    Please pardon me for using your space: Permits successful, but construction not successful in details. (Hello YIMBY)

  2. Self storage instead of affordable housing hmmmmm. Not sure if I like that?

  3. Self-storage facility just blocks from Prospect Park and decent access to subways, meanwhile we have a housing crisis and rents are out of control. Perfect.

  4. There’s a Self Storage building ON THAT BLOCK. How much storage does one block need (nevermind 2 buildings with no commercial space on Coney Island Avenue, which should be a major commercial strip for the neighborhood but is instead auto shops).;

    Once again looking to build a nine story building in a neighborhood of six storied buildings, with two exceptions already. The neighborhood doesn’t need another nine story building, especially with commercial use instead of low cost housing.
