Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018, the new, revised Redevelopment Agreement between the City of Batavia and Shodeen’s LLC for the massive One Washington Place apartment complex was approved by a vote of 8-7, the City Council voting 7-7, with Mayor Schielke breaking the tie in favor of the project.
There will now be 194 apartments and only 335 parking spaces. There will be no retail along Wilson, but apartments at ground level, as well as on State St. The only retail space will be on River St where the current parking deck is.
Way to go city council – keep spending our money on horrendous projects like this, and we’ll be moving to a town where the government understands that it works for the citizens
