Where we live: Cheektowaga


Clover Communities Cayuga has dropped its plans for a four-story senior apartment complex on Cayuga Road.

The developer’s rezoning request was formally withdrawn earlier this month. There was a lot of opposition from residents who lived on the street behind the site, and the developer said it wasn’t financially viable to reduce the height of the building.

Clover wanted to demolish existing one-story office buildings at 280 and 300 Cayuga Road, then redevelop the site, which also includes a lot at 274 Cayuga with a residential garage.

The four-story, 84-unit building would have housed a mix of one- and two-bedroom market-rate apartments with balconies.

Residents of Harvard Court, which is behind the site, said the project was too big and they also feared a loss of privacy on their properties.
