CLIFTON PARK — An office and light industrial park is proposed at a 90-acre site at Waite Road and Route 146.
At full buildout, the project would entail seven one- and two-story buildings totaling 123,000 square feet, but construction would be done in stages over an undetermined period and each stage would not start until tenants were lined up for the space.
The proposal by Woodhaven Land Partners, an LLC with a Glenville address, is scheduled to get its first review by the town Planning Board at its meeting on Wednesday, May 25.
Planning Department Director John Scavo said the proposal complies with the zoning rules for the site and the town comprehensive plan — no variances would be needed.
Gavin Vuillaume of Environmental Design Partnership, which is working on the proposal as a site consultant, said there isn’t a time frame for buildout, and the land wouldn’t be cleared or graded until construction is ready to begin.
Gaining town approval in advance for the entire project speeds the process when individual pieces of the project are ready to proceed.
Vuillaume said the office component of the space would be smaller offices. Woodhaven Land Partners is currently constructing a two-story, 10,520-square-foot office building on Route 146 adjacent to the proposed business park. It has a tech tenant lined up for that space, Vuillaume said.
Plans submitted to the town for the business park indicate it would have 450 parking spaces and its entrance would be on Waite Road. Sixteen of the 90.4 acres would be disturbed by the project.
The 123,000 square feet of indoor space would be spread among four office buildings of 5,000 to 30,000 square feet and three commercial buildings of 15,000 to 30,000 square feet. They would rely on public water and sewer infrastructure and on-site provisions would be in place for stormwater management.
