BATAVIA, NY – The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) Board of Directors will consider proposals for $18.2 million of new investment at its July 1, 2021 board meeting.

Gateway GS LLC (Gallina Development) is proposing to construct the third phase of its flex campus at the GCEDC’s Gateway II Corporate Park in the town of Batavia.

The $2.36 million investment will construct a 27,000 sq. ft. facility to be completed in 2022 for a single logistics-distribution tenant. The future tenant is estimated to create 21 new jobs at an average annual salary of $42,000. The GCEDC Board of Directors will consider an initial resolution for the project. Gateway GS, LLC, is seeking approximately $386,891 in sales, mortgage, and property tax exemptions.

The GCEDC Board of Directors will also consider a final resolution for Just Chez Realty, LLC.  The company is proposing a $450,000 building redevelopment project as part of the City of Batavia’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). The project would renovate approximately 6,000 sq. ft. of a 13,324 sq. ft. building at 206 E. Main Street to create 2 market rate apartments on the building’s second floor, and follows improvements to the first floor of the building.  Just Chez Realty is seeking approximately $21,000 in sales tax exemptions.

The GCEDC Board of Directors will also consider an initial resolution for two community solar projects on Ellicott Street Road in the town of Batavia. Trousdale Solar, LLC is proposing projects that would generate 5 MW and 4 MW of electricity.  The PILOTs would result in payments of approximately $930,000 to the Batavia City School District and Genesee County over 15 years. Trousdale Solar, LLC is seeking approximately $2.5 million in property and sales tax exemptions.

The board meeting will be held at 4 p.m. in the Innozone at the MedTech Centre, located at 99 MedTech Drive in Batavia. The meeting will also be broadcast on-line at www.gcedc.com.
