CHEEKTOWAGA – A Rochester firm is looking to demolish the abandoned gas station at the intersection of Union Road and Walden Avenue allowing for the construction of an urgent care medical facility according to documents filed with the Town of Cheektowaga.
The HollandTrotta Project, of Rochester, submitted a re-zoning application to change the designation of 3450 Union Road from motor service to neighborhood service district.
The proposed project calls for the construction of a 3,200 square foot building which would be occupied by 5 Star Urgent Care. The business which has several locations in Central New York appears to be expanding into Western New York according to their website. They currently have offices in Niagara Falls and Jamestown.
The application also calls for a variance to the zoning law due to the unique size of the site which would force proposed parking spaces to be constructed within a 10-foot space surrounding the property lot lines.
Buffalo City Digs, LLC has owned the property since 2014 and has granted permission to the firm improve the property. The property owner is $26,593.36 behind in property taxes according to Erie County tax records.
The town’s Environmental Advisory Committee will discuss the project at their meeting at 3:30 pm on February 28th at the Alexander Community Center.
