A transplant surgeon-turned-developer is seeking the final approvals he needs to move forward with an 18-unit, upscale apartment complex in East Amherst.
Dr. Fadi Dagher plans to put up a two-story, multifamily building at 9150 Transit Road, just north of the Transit Valley Country Club and next to Grover's Bar & Grill. All but two would be two-bedroom units, ranging from 900 square feet to 1,400 square feet.
The Amherst Town Board already agreed to rezone 1.37 acres of the 1.96-acre site, from general business to multifamily residential, and approved several variances to make way for the $4 million project. Dagher's Cedarland Development Group also is building an eight-unit parking garage, parking lot, landscaping and a driveway connection to Transit Road.
