del Lago Resort & Casino
del Lago Resort & Casino in Seneca County was selected in December 2014 as one of four sites in the State to be considered for a casino license. BME Associates served as the lead consultant for the site plan design and municipal approval process contributing significantly to the project’s on-time completion within the strict NYS imposed timeline. The Casino opened on time in February 2017 and is a premier destination spot within the Finger Lakes region.

BME managed the site design, subdivision, utility, grading, landscape and lighting as well as stormwater management, including green infrastructure practices. Working with municipal and agency officials, BME secured approvals and variances needed for construction of this lakefront hotel.

Oak & Apple, Penfield Located in the Town of Penfield, NY, Oak & Apple Cidery is a 2,500 square foot Farm Ciderhouse built on 27 acres in a Town and County Agriculture Zoning District. In one building, apples are pressed into juice and fermented into hard cider. The main structure is a beautiful barnwood farm-style building where the cider is sold and served in an elegant yet rustic tasting room. BME worked with the owner to navigate the approval process including coordination of sidewalk issues, parking lot placement and design, landscaping buffers, tree planting areas, watercourse and steep slope EPOD consideration, and architectural guideline compliance.
Eastview Mall, Victor BME’s long involvement with the Wilmorite Corporation’s Eastview Mall goes back more than four decades, when Bruce Boncke—well before he and his partners founded BME—worked in concert with Tom Wilmot as the Mall was constructed in 1970. Since BME’s beginnings in 1988, the firm has played a continuing role as Eastview has evolved and expanded to become one of the premier shopping destinations in Western New York.
Lyons National Bank, Perinton The Lyons National Bank project has been instrumental in fulfilling a long term community vision in the Town of Perinton. BME’s design for the bank branch provided optimal placement of the building both aesthetically and functionally. The parking lot and drive-up window/ATM were designed to enhance convenience, and a beautiful pocket park was designed for community appeal. BME’s Linc Swedrock is a member of the LNB-Perinton Advisory Board.
