The building at 23 Caton Place in Windsor Terrace has been a bit of a mystery for everyoneeven the office of councilman Brad Lander couldn't get any information or find out who the true owner wasbut now, thanks to the Real Deal (via Brownstoner), we have answers. The owner is Sam Boymelgreen, son of the infamous developer Shaya Boymelgreen, who had more than a few issues during the crash and recession (Sam insists that his dad is not involved with his business). The Caton Place building is now going by no. 33, and it will be called The Kestrel (that's a type of falcon, folks). Leasing of the 126 units will begin in April, and a teaser site says the amenities include an attended lobby, attended parking, a rooftop deck, gym, lounge, storage, kid's room, and, of course, a pet spa.
Boymelgreen also recently inked a 49-year lease for a 96,000-square-foot property at 255 Butler Street near Nevins Street in Gowanus. A Massey Knakal broker speculates that it will be a hotel or office building. In Clinton Hill, he's developing a 10-unit at the corner of Washington and
Lafayette Fulton avenues. UPDATE: Brownstoner had thought this was 351 Washington Avenue, "a roomy 19th century brick building owned by an LLC with FAR that would allow a building twice its size," but given its location on Fulton, that's not the case.
