On August 11, 2021, Twin Pines Housing and its development partner Evernorth celebrated the completion of the construction of 17 new apartments to the Wentworth Way development and four new units located a few miles away in Wilder, VT.
The Wilder site is comprised of four two-bedroom apartments, each with washer/dryer hookups and a private porch or patio. The site was initially an infill development site requiring cleanup of contaminated soils.
The Wentworth Way site adds eight one-bedroom flats, eight two-bedroom townhouses and one three-bedroom townhouse to the 30 apartments built in the first phase. The new building includes a community space, onsite laundry, private entrances with patios or porches and use of the common outdoor amenities – community gardens, outdoor seating and play spaces.
Both of the buildings in this second phase were designed and constructed to high performance energy standards, use no fossil fuels, and employ a new mechanical system which brings individualized heating, cooling and ventilation to each unit. All utilities will be included in the rent, and the Development’s electrical costs will be offset by the new PV solar panels. The project was designed by gbA Architecture and constructed by Naylor and Breen builders.
