Pittsford Village Board Hires Consultant In Apartment Complex Debate

The village Board of of Trustees in Pittsford is hiring a consultant for the controversial proposed apartment complex.
The village Board of of Trustees in Pittsford is hiring a consultant for the controversial proposed apartment complex. 

Right now work is stalled at 75 Monroe Avenue. The cleaned-up Brownfield site is supposed to become Westport Crossing. It would include a 167-unit apartment complex with retail space and a restaurant. But some board members do not think the building would fit historically. The consultant would look at the environmental review approved in 2012. 

"It's a large project. It's the largest project in the history of the village. It's at a highly sensitive, visible gateway adjacent to a historic resource of national significance; the Erie Canal," Mayor Bob Corby said.

Developer Canalside Projects has sued the village and residents over attempts to hold up the construction. A decision in that lawsuit is expected soon.
