The next phase of redevelopment for the Northtown Plaza is being looked at by the Amherst Zoning Board of Review.  According to Business First, WS Development plans to bring retailers like L.L. Bean, Pottery Barn and Deep Elm to the Sheridan Drive shopping center.  The zoning board deferred any vote until its November meeting, at the earliest.  A total of 10 variances are needed, ranging from landscaping issues to on-site parking concerns.  All told, WS Development may be investing as much as $60 million on the next phase for the shopping center.

The Hamister Group’s hotel project in Niagara Falls has moved onto its next phase of construction.  Crews are now installing the roof for the Hyatt Place on Rainbow Boulevard and working on the interior of the $35 million development.  Construction remains on schedule for an opening in the first quarter of 2018.
