Construction on Wentworth Community Housing has begun!

Construction on Wentworth Community Housing located on Sykes Mountain Avenue began in the mid-June, 2018. The soil conditions at the property have allowed work to progress quickly, and the foundation for this 30-unit building is almost complete. This new 3-story, mixed-income residential building is expected to be complete in the summer of 2019 and will include:

  • 30 apartments: 15 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom units
  • Parking under the building as well as a surface lot
  • Elevator equipped with a laundry room on each floor
  • Terrace, community room, children’s play area, and garden area

Planning for a second phase of townhouse-style apartments has begun.

Plan to build new 30-unit rental complex on Sykes Mountain Avenue in White River Junction

Project will include community gardens, open space, and a play area

Twin Pines Housing Trust is planning to build a new, 30-unit rental complex on Sykes Mountain Avenue in White River Junction, VT. The project will include 15 one-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom apartments with some parking underneath, community gardens, a play area, and open space on this 6-acre site. A second phase of townhouse-style apartments is also being discussed along with the best way to access and protect nearby Lily Pond.

This $8 million, mixed-income project is being developed in partnership with Housing Vermont (www.hvt.org). Units will be available based on household size and income as a percent of the area median income (AMI) for Windsor County, which is $72,600 for a family of four in 2017.

  •   21 units for households at 50% and 60% of AMI
  •   9 units for households at 80-120% of AMI
  •   25% of tax credit units for the homeless

Twin Pines has obtained permits from the Hartford Department of Planning and Development and is finalizing designs. Initial funding has been approved by Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, and Twin Pines will apply for Low Income Housing Tax Credits in 2018. Gifts and grants from individuals, businesses, and foundations will also play an important role in funding this new affordable housing community.
