Developer Chris Iversen and his company, Chrisanntha, have submitted a plan for a 134-unit housing project in Canandaigua, near Stewart Place, Kennedy Street, and North Road.

The Finger Lakes Times reports the proposal comes after an initial plan to build 72 units on 30 acres was withdrawn following City Council review.

The new plan includes 47 residential buildings, ranging from two to six-unit structures, along with a for-sale townhouse community, dedicated roadways, open space, recreation areas, and other amenities.

In a letter to City Manager John Goodwin, Iversen explained that the higher density is necessary to overcome roadblocks related to existing drainage ditches on the property, which has remained undeveloped for nearly 20 years.

The proposed development would eliminate a dead end at Stewart Place and improve traffic flow in the area, addressing current bottlenecks. The property is currently zoned for single-family residential and would need to be rezoned for the project to proceed.
