Mellishwood Apartments – Update February 26, 2024

Things continue to move forward with our plans for redeveloping the property. Last month, Twin Pines secured site plan approval from Woodstock Village Design Review Board for its plans to build a new 28-unit building behind the historic buildings at Mellishwood. The design by Banwell Architects of Lebanon, NH, now features a mansard-style roof. We are pleased with the design concepts, which received significant input from the Woodstock Design Advisory Committee.

Once completed, the entire Mellishwood complex will include 39 units, providing for more affordable, senior housing options in Woodstock.

This month, Twin Pines submitted financing applications to the Vermont Housing Finance Agency and to the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board. We hope to receive word on those applications sometime in the middle of spring.

We are excited about the strong support that the project received during the permitting process and to have the local approvals in hand.

Twin Pines is building an 18-unit apartment building, on a parcel of the St. Paul’s Church property. The building will have three-stories with a pitched roof and with all apartments having a single bedroom. The building will provide permanent housing for its residents, who will receive case management services from the Haven in addition to services provided by Twin Pines’ staff. It will help meet the need for permanent housing with supportive services from those who have experienced long-term homelessness.


PROJECT UPDATE — May 24th, 2024:

Interior painting is essentially done on the 2nd and 3rd floors and sheetrocking is wrapping up on the 1st floor. Meanwhile, the installation of the elevator continues.  We are still expecting the arrival of the kitchen cabinets and installation will begin soon after delivery.  Flooring will begin once the counters are in place.
Note, a section of the exterior siding on the front of the building has not been completed because the contractors are still using several of the front windows to move materials into the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building.

We try to give updates on upcoming deliveries, but some literally arrive with only a few hours’ notice.  If a delivery does or is going to occur, Ingram Construction does set out cones in the parking lot.  Therefore, if the cones are visible, you can assume that a delivery is imminent.
