Site work could begin by November on the restaurant connected to the Reikart House hotel in Snyder, after the Amherst Planning Board on Thursday approved the site plan and found the project would not harm the environment.
Iskalo Development plans to submit design drawings for the Jazzboline restaurant to the town for building permits in the next few weeks, said David Chiazza, Iskalo's executive vice president. Jazzboline, at 5010 Main St., is on track to open in fall 2018.
The developer behind the Reikart House, which replaced the Lord Amherst Hotel, and the Hyatt Place hotel on the same campus decided to tear down the former Sonoma Grille and to construct a new restaurant. The two hotels and restaurant will share 335 parking spaces. Iskalo also would build a pocket park on the grounds.
