While plans have been stalled for a senior citizens housing project on French Road in Cheektowaga, another senior project has emerged on Transit Road.

Cheektowaga's Environmental Advisory Council is reviewing plans for a 114-unit complex on the west side of Transit, south of Como Park Boulevard, according to officials in the Cheektowaga Building Department.

The Environmental Advisory Council was expected to continue reviewing the plans at its meeting today.

The developer of the 7-acre site is Gold Seal Equity Corp.

Initial plans show a two-story building with a community center separating two 57-unit wings. Parking for 114 vehicles is planned, with access only from Transit Road.

The property is zoned for neighborhood services and residential. The Town Board eventually would need to rezone the land to residential-senior citizens for the project to proceed.

The project design may change, however, and the town is awaiting new plans from the project architect, according to Thomas Adamczak, a town building inspector.

Meanwhile, the other senior housing proposal still faces scrutiny from some Town Board members.

A proposal to rezone 20 acres on the south side of French Road, between Pheasant Lane and Brentwood Drive, for a 200-plus unit senior housing complex has been pulled from the Town Board agenda three meetings in a row.

Some Town Board members still are concerned about the project's financing, as well as the developer's track record.
