The sale of a nearly 15-acre parcel owned by the Williamsville Central School District that will allow Ciminelli Real Estate Corp. to build a second access road into its proposed Muir Woods development was approved Tuesday by the School Board.
Ciminelli purchased the land at 520 Campbell Blvd., between North French and Dodge roads, for $220,000, more than three times its assessed value of $71,000. The access road will allow entry into the property from Campbell Boulevard to the east.
The district has owned the vacant 14.8-acre property since January 1967, according to Erie County real property records. The district has never developed the land.
After 17 years in the making, construction on the first of the 133 homes in the Muir Woods subdivision in Amherst will start by fall 2018, according to Ciminelli.
