Rift between developers kills project near Medical Campus
McGuire takes over $200 million project at Pilgrim Village
Abitter battle between McGuire Development Co. and a former partner has ended with the company taking over the site of a long-stalled $200 million development of retail and housing on the edge of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.
McGuire late Friday seized control of the 11-acre Pilgrim Village, which is home to low-income townhouses, after developer Mark H.
For now, McGuire executives said, a nonprofit company will continue managing the 66-unit property while McGuire decides how best to redevelop the site.
Some of the apartments at Pilgrim Village are still occupied, but the future of a plan to build more housing and retail at the site is uncertain after McGuire Development officials say Mark Trammell defaulted on $12 million in loans.
