The developer of a four-story apartment complex in the heart of Williamsville plans to start construction next week on the $4 million project.
John E. "Skip" Cerio, president of CRS Companies, plans to construct 13 apartments and a parking garage in the 26,000-square-foot building at the corner of Main and South Long streets.
The project, which initially included almost double the apartments and first-floor retail, has evolved during the several years as it awaited final approval from village boards. CRS tore down two houses at 8 and 20 S. Long St. The apartments will use the 20 S. Long address.
The estimated project cost includes land acquisition. Cerio said work on "The Williams," which is marketed to those who want to live in a walkable village, should take about 12 months. The company held a ceremonial groundbreaking Friday.
