A plan to build two three-story buildings on Transit Road in East Amherst received approval Monday night from the Town Board.
The buildings would have a combined 38 upscale apartments, open to residents of any age, on the second and third floors and 17,000 square feet of office and commercial space on the first floors.
The board agreed to rezone 1.8 acres of the 6.8-acre suburban-agriculture site to general business and multifamily residential for the buildings and parking spaces.
Rane Management plans to expand its Fox Creek Estates senior apartments, at 9500 Transit Road, by constructing two three-story buildings on the adjoining property at 9540 Transit Road, north of Casey Road. Rane Management also owns the townhomes just to the south at 9512 Transit.
The Planning Board in August voted 7-0 to recommend approving the rezoning.
