Forbes Capretto Homes Building in City

One of the region’s largest home builders is looking to build on the lower West Side. OK, it is only one house. Forbes Capretto Homes is seeking Planning Board approval to construct a single-family residence at 20 West Avenue, a vacant lot north of Carolina Street.

It is unclear if the home is being built by a lot owner or will be for sale by Forbes. The 34’x 90’ lot is listed as City-owned in property records.  It is a block away from a single-family residence Fred and Katherine Heinle are building at 179 W. Tupper Street.

Forbes Capretto Homes has new home communities stretching from Lewiston to Orchard Park and has built over 3,000 homes in the past 30 years. Before merging with Capretto Homes, Forbes did quite a bit of work in the city. The company partnered with MJ Peterson to build dozens of market-rate and subsidized homes in the Pratt Willert neighborhood on the near east side in the 1990s/2000s.
