New housing, retreat center, apartments planned for Niagara County | Business Local


Fourteen new homes in Lockport, a retreat and training facility in Wheatfield and a small apartment building in North Tonawanda were among a host of new retail, residential and commercial projects up for review this week in Erie and Niagara counties.

Severyn Development, led by brothers Alex and Will Severyn, are proposing to develop a 14-lot single-family subdivision on 5.4 acres at 1100 Beattie Ave. in the Town of Lockport. The project, the latest by the brothers in both Erie and Niagara counties, is under consideration by the Niagara County Planning Board, on referral from the town.
