Morgan Management LLC is moving forward with its plan to create luxury apartments at 933 University Ave., with the project slated to begin in the spring.
Plans call for 99 one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as lofts. The design will be modern, but in line with the surrounding cultural neighborhood, officials at the Perinton company said. There also will be 132 covered parking spaces for residents.
The project had been held up due to litigation brought by the George Eastman House next door, claiming it did not fit with the neighborhood. Morgan Management said after more than two years of legal challenges, it is ready to move forward.
“We are excited to officially begin development on this project,” said Kevin Morgan, Morgan Management’s vice president, in a statement. “We have spent a tremendous amount of time and effort ensuring it will fit with the aesthetics of this historic city neighborhood and will continue to be a valued resource for veterans and their families.”
The site will continue to serve members of Monroe Voiture 111 of the national Forty & Eight Club. The national veterans’ association promotes the well being of veterans, their widows and orphans. The organization will have lifetime usage of the facility, free of charge, the company said.
In addition to finalizing the development plans with the veterans and the Landmark Society of Western New York, Morgan Management conducted a traffic pattern study to ensure that there will be no issues with traffic congestion once the facility is complete.
