The town of Amherst, N.Y., will make an offer for the Westwood Country Club property in Williamsville, N.Y., but is still “doing its homework” before deciding on a figure, the Buffalo (N.Y.) News reported.
Mensch Capital Partners currently owns the 170-acre site. When asked how much the town might be willing to pay for the property, Supervisor Barry A. Weinstein said: “Obviously, it’s not going to be very much. It’s contaminated.”
Mensch purchased Westwood in 2012 for $2.5 million and wants to develop the property into a $238 million mixed-use residential, commercial and retail community with housing options for 1,700 people. Mensch, however, needs to clean up the site, after environmental tests discovered traces of arsenic in soil samples from past use of pesticides, the News reported.
