FALCONER – A project that would redevelop a property in the Village of Falconer which was destroyed by multiple fires in recent years took another step forward this week.
The Town of Ellicott Board have approved a new Payment In Lieu of Taxes agreement allowing for advancement of the new Falconer Square project.
The agreement gives developers the green light to increase the number of apartment units at the site from 53 to 55.
This new project features a 15,000 square foot mixed-use building and 4,000 square feet of townhomes. Construction plans were first approved last year.
The Rochester based developer, Home Leasing, is applying for a state funding for the project, which village leaders previously supported in a letter.
If the group can secure state funds, then a groundbreaking ceremony will likely happen this fall.
