The vacant Garden Village Plaza in Cheektowaga is finally being transformed from a vacant eyesore into a distribution center. It was shared yesterday that Benderson Development plans to turn the property into a four building complex after demolishing about half the site and renovate the rest. According to The Buffalo News, the project was helped along when the "Erie County Industrial Development Agency approved $2.5 million in tax breaks for the project." The project will set Benderson Development back about $20 million but should do wonders for the corner of French and Union.

While there are no tenants currently lined up for the site, they have promised at least 120 jobs and have been told that if they don't create these jobs their tax incentives can be taken away.
