A developer's plan to build apartments and townhouses on a former industrial site in Williamsville received two key approvals from the Village Board on Thursday.
The Village Board determined the proposal by Natale Development would not harm the environment and authorized Mayor Brian Kulpa to sign a land swap agreement with the developer.
The village still must finalize the details of the trade, which would give the village control of a historic, railroad-era property in exchange for about a half-acre of land owned by the its public works department.
Natale plans to build about 90 apartment units in three buildings, along with 32 townhouses, on the former Herbert F. Darling Inc. construction yard on California Drive. The village Planning Board still must approve the project, known as Asher Crossing, which could cost $20 million to $25 million.
