A $16 million dollar student housing project is in the works in Orchard Park. Business First says developers will construct a 120-unit apartment complex on Southwestern Boulevard to serve students at ECC South. If approved, it could be ready for the fall 2012 semester. This is the second time this year that ECC's board of trustees has approved such a project. Crews are now building a student apartment complex at ECC North as well.
