Lancaster panel to consider Edgewater Apartment Homes expansion

A West Seneca real estate developer is seeking approval from the Town of Lancaster to nearly double its upscale Edgewater Apartment Homes community on Broadway, with more than 100 additional units proposed along with a clubhouse and a pool.

Young Development wants to put up four more three-story buildings with a total of 104 upscale residential apartments at 5820 Broadway, immediately to the west of its existing Edgewater community at 5828 Broadway, across from Bowen Road. The project, which includes related improvements, detached garages, parking spaces and landscaping, will be considered Wednesday by the town Planning Board, along with several other unrelated initiatives.

The current 130-unit complex includes five buildings with 26 apartments and 10 attached garages in each, along with an additional but separate five-car garage near the front of the development. There’s also a clubhouse and pool, along with more than 100 surface parking spaces.

The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments range in size from 877 square feet to 1,327 square feet, with monthly rents of $935 to $1,460. The units feature stainless-steel appliances, hardwood cabinetry, granite countertops, large closets and either a patio or balcony, while the complex has a fitness center, recreation room, business center and on-site dog park.

Plans for the new project on 7.9 acres now owned by Daniel Amatura and Richard Sherwood again call for 26 apartments and 10 attached garages in each building, with a total of 209 parking spaces. The northernmost 3.37 acres, including Plum Bottom Creek, will be preserved as open space.

The new project already received zoning variances and environmental approval from the town. If it receives final approval, construction would begin in the fall, with the apartments to open in August 2017.

Also on Wednesday, Lancaster officials will consider:

• A proposed storage facility to store shredded topsoil at 31 Peppermint Road.

• Renovations to the existing used-car facility at Joe Basil Resale Center at 5111 Transit Road, including construction of new walls to enclose the area under the existing roof.

• A petition to rezone 6645 Transit to allow Royal Car Wash to build a 3,600-square-foot building.

• A three-lot residential development at 455 Pleasant View Drive.
