Final approval sought for condo project

LOCKPORT -- Final approval for an 88-unit condominium project on Park Lane Circle will be sought at the Oct. 3 city Planning Board meeting.

Edward E. Lewis, head of Lockport Condominium Development, said 22 four-unit buildings are to be erected in three phases over a two-year period.

He told the board last week that the first phase has been scaled back from six buildings to four in order to keep it out of a flood plain on the site. Lewis said permission is needed from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to build on the flood plain.

The size of the second and third phases hasn't been decided, Lewis said.
