AMHERST, N.Y. (WKBW) — A redevelopment project for the Northtown Plaza in Amherst has received some new life.
As first reported by The Buffalo News, WS Development has announced additional tenants and a new name for the 330,000 square foot project. The property will now be called "Station Twleve."
According to WS Development, the name comes from the land’s earliest identifier as “Township 12.”
“The name is both future-focused and firmly rooted in the past,” said Christa Seychew, Director, Station Twelve. “We expect this place to become an essential hub of community, culture and commerce, and we feel this name helps to articulate that aspiration.”
Previously announced retailers L.L. Bean, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, West Elm, and B.Good remain part of the plans and Banana Republic, Athleta, City Works and Public Espresso and Coffee have recently signed on.
The developer says the project will include a central green, which will provide weekly activities, including free fitness, family events and makers workshops.
WS Development spoke to 7 Eyewitness News in November 2017 and stated the project would create an estimated 1,000 jobs and released this statement:
People will come in the morning for a workout and a cup of coffee, then come back later in the day for a pair of jeans and groceries.
The developer expects to break ground on the redevelopment of the new buildings later this year.
