Bevilacqua Development is proposing to construct a pair of mixed-use multitenant commercial buildings that would fill out a retail plaza at the southwest corner of Casey and Transit roads in Amherst.
The 5.65-acre plaza property at9290-9300 Transit is divided into three parcels. It already has a 15,470-square-foot Aldi grocery store and a 13,321-square-foot CVS Pharmacy taking up two of the pieces. But there’s still a long grass field behind both stores, totaling 1.72 acres.
Aldi – which owns the entire property – has agreed to sell that rear portion and the CVS property to Bevilacqua for $3 million, divesting itself of 3.5 acres while keeping its own store.
“It’s rare when you get to acquire a generational quality asset like CVS,” said Jonathan Bevilacqua, owner and managing member of his firm. “It’s a signal intersection with a heavily trafficked area, with room for additional development.”
Under plans by architects at Lauer-Manguso and engineers at Carmina Wood Morris PC, the developer is proposing to construct two single-story buildings – a 4,500-square-foot building at the north end toward Casey, with a proposed outdoor patio area for 24 seats, and a 12,000-square-foot building at the southern end.
Bevilaqua said he has signed two leases so far. Kaylena Marie’s Bakery will open its second location in 2,400 square feet of the smaller building. The bakery already operates in another Bevilacqua-owned property in Orchard Park. And School of Rock, a franchise, will occupy 3,000 square feet at one end of the larger building.
If approved, Bevilacqua hopes to start the $1.6 million project as soon as possible, and finish the building shells by October.
This is the latest project in that part of Amherst for Bevilacqua, which previously built out the 45,000-square-foot Transit Meadows office and retail complex at Transit and Clarence Center roads, and also purchased 36 acres at Transit and Miles roads.
The Amherst Planning Board will evaluate the proposal on April 15.

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.

A gym that features boxing workouts is punching its way into the Main Street business district in Amherst.
Level Red Boxing, founded in Erie, Pa., is opening a new location in the Lymstone Lofts mixed-use building at 5933 Main St., straddling the Amherst-Williamsville boundary line across from Williamsville South High School.
Level Red Boxing, which also has a location in Pittsburgh, offers “boxing-inspired group fitness” through workouts that also include kettle bell strength exercises and core conditioning, according to its website. The workouts cater to everyone from beginners to gym rats, the company said.
A relocated Domino’s Pizza plans to move into a new retail building with a drive-thru on Transit Road across from Transit Valley Country Club.
Crews broke ground a month ago on the 8,500-square-foot, single-story building at 6031 Transit Road, the site of the former Buggy Wash car wash, said Bevilacqua Development CEO Jonathan Bevilacqua. The building shell should be finished in May and it should be ready for occupancy this summer.
Domino’s is moving there from 5855 Transit Road. In addition, Pita Gourmet is opening its third area location and Divine Nail Spa is opening a second salon there.
Bevilacqua also has finished work on two of five buildings in a planned office complex at 6041 Transit. TenEleven Group software company moved to 6047 Transit two months ago, and Transit Meadow Pediatrics will move from 6477 Transit to 6049 Transit on Feb. 12.
Whether you’re a young professional desiring a maintenance-free lifestyle or an empty nester looking to downsize, Lymstone Lofts, located in the quaint Village of Williamsville, is just what you’re looking for. Situated on Main Street across from Williamsville South High School and within walking distance of Erie Community College, Lymstone Lofts offers urban-style, maintenance free living with walkable access to restaurants, parks and shopping. It is located in the Williamsville School District, one of the highestranking districts in the area.
The unique spelling of “Lymstone” pays homage to Buffalo architect Duane Lyman, whose firm designed Williamsville South High School, among other prominent local buildings. Choose from 10 open floor plans comprised of six one-bedroom/1.5 bathroom units, two one-bedroom/one bathroom units or 12 two-bedroom/two bathroom units. All 20 apartments boast plenty of natural light and high-end designer finishes throughout.

The Lymstone Lofts building on the Williamsville-Amherst border is set to open to its residential tenants next week, with a spa and Lloyd Taco Factory coming after that.
Bevilacqua Development is developer and general contractor on the three-story building at 5933 Main St., across from Williamsville South High School. The 56,000-square-foot building has retail on the first floor and 20 upscale apartments on the upper floors.
Bevilacqua has leased nine of the apartments and the first tenants are set to move in as soon as next week, pending final inspections, said CEO Jonathan Bevilacqua.
Pita Gourmet plans to open its third area location in a new retail building that Bevilacqua Development wants to construct on Transit Road in Clarence.
Bevilacqua is looking to build an 8,500-square-foot, single-story building with a drive-through at 6031 Transit Road, across from the Transit Valley Country Club, on the site of the former Buggy Wash self-serve car wash.
The company doesn’t yet have a tenant for the drive-through section but Pita Gourmet has signed a lease for the other end of the building, said CEO Jonathan Bevilacqua. At least one or two other tenants would fill the building. Pita Gourmet’s other locations are in Niagara Falls and Lancaster.
A plan to construct a five-building office park and a retail plaza across from the Transit Valley Country Club has started to transform a swath of largely undeveloped land on Transit Road in Clarence.
Bevilacqua Development LP has started construction on three new suburban office buildings aimed at medical and professional tenants that will make up the $10 million Transit Meadows Professional Park. A second phase slated to begin this summer would add two more office buildings to the complex at 6041 Transit.
The developer also plans to build a retail plaza nearby on the site of the former Buggy Wash at 6031 Transit Road that would include a fast-casual restaurant.
The first $7 million phase of the office complex is underway, with the shells of three 10,000-square-foot buildings nearly completed and all work slated to be finished in August, said President Jonathan Bevilacqua.
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.
