CHEEKTOWAGA – Construction work at the old Garden Village Plaza site has begun.

Cheektowaga Chronicle observed crews leveling and hauling away topsoil with heavy machinery Wednesday afternoon.

Demolition work at the site began last July, months after Benderson Development announced their plans to transform the zombie retail plaza into a warehouse and distribution complex

The Cheektowaga Town Council approved modifications to reduce the footprint of a proposed warehouse/office building in March.
