Bevilacqua 6031 plaza receives concept plan approval


Residents of Woodbridge Village have seen Transit Road evolve into a highway with heavy traffic and dense development, and they’re letting their voices be heard that Bevilacqua Development’s latest project will only exacerbate an issue that they say is threatening their way of life.

At the Planning Board’s May 15 meeting, Bevilacqua requested concept plan approval and a recommendation for a special exemption use permit for a proposed retail/restaurant plaza at 6031 Transit Road. The approximately 9,000-square-foot plaza would be built on the site of the former Buggy Wash, between

Buffalo Pharmacy and a NOCO gas station.

“We’ve approached NOCO on the future driveway connection. They’re aware of our development,” said Jonathan Bevilacqua on the prospect of connecting the NOCO gas station property with his proposed retail plaza. “We put that on a note on the drawing, that we’re willing to provide a future dimension if at some point they’re willing to allow our parcels to connect.”

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.
