Bevilacqua buys 36 acres on Transit for residential-retail development

By Stephen T. Watson | Published 10:51 a.m. September 26, 2018

Bevilacqua Development plans to construct residential and retail space on 36 acres of vacant land the company bought this week along Transit Road in Clarence.

CEO Jonathan Bevilacqua said the company doesn’t yet have a concept plan for the property, on Transit just north of Miles Road. But he said they expect to hammer out the design for a mixed-use development within the next two months and to submit a site plan to Clarence officials within six months.

Bevilacqua Development paid $760,000 to buy the vacant parcel from D3 Transit LLC, according to public records. Bevilacqua said the property was attractive because of its 720 feet of frontage on Transit, an amount that is difficult to assemble, and because of its proximity to the company’s other parcels in Clarence and East Amherst.

The upscale apartments in a three-story building now nearing completion on Main Street in Williamsville will feature 8-foot-high doors, quartz countertops and a second head in every shower meant to reproduce the effect of rainfall.

There are 20 apartments in the Lymstone Lofts, located at 5933 Main St. across from Williamsville South High School, and amenities like these are why Bevilacqua Development LP plans to charge monthly rents ranging from $1,600 for a one-bedroom unit to up to $2,800 for a two-bedroom unit, depending on the size and room layout.

“There’s pretty strong demand, I believe, for residential housing in the village, and there’s not a lot of new supply in that area,” CEO Jonathan Bevilacqua said.
