8.22.14-The big boom may be over, but Webster continues to grow

While the number of projects is down from a peak in the early 2000s, commercial and residential building in Webster is cruising along at a steady clip.

At least two dozen projects are in some stage of development.

A new Dairy Queen Chill & Grill on the west side of Hard Road, next to the Fairfield Inn, is set to open on Monday. At the Webster Towne Center Plaza construction is underway for a new LA Fitness, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Jos. A. Bank, and T Mobile store.

Construction of a new Wendy’s restaurant was recently approved for 987 Ridge Road. A Mavis Tire Store is going in at 1030 Ridge Road and Buffalo Wild Wings will move into the former Key Bank space in Towne Center.

While plans for single-family homes have been approved recently, the town is seeing an increase in housing for senior citizens and empty nesters. Supervisor Ron Nesbitt himself has moved into Cambridge Court, a development built for those 55-and-older.
