The city is moving to redevelop the Flatbush Caton Market into a mixed-use, affordable apartment building, and now a private developer has filed plans for a vacant lot on the next block, at 2155 Caton Avenue.
Until now, the residential supertall boom has been focused on the core of Midtown, with One57, 432 Park, 217 West 57th Street, and 111 West 57th Street all rising in the blocks between Eighth and Park avenue. Now, we have fresh renderings for Kohn Pedersen Fox’s entry into a design contest for 151 East 60th Street, which would rise on the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 60th Street, stretching Midtown’s new skyscraper crown a few blocks northeast of its current local maxima.
Most developers building market-rate apartments in the South Bronx have set their sights on Port Morris, a relatively narrow industrial strip that wraps around the southern tip of the borough.
