Today’s Valley News featured two Twin Pines Housing projects in development. An overview of the projects follows, but we encourage everyone to read the entire article here: Twin Pines Revises Plans for West Lebanon Apartment Complex by Tim Camerato.
Twin Pines Housing is hoping to gain approval from the City of Lebanon to reposition a building previously approved for construction on Main Street in West Lebanon to now face nearby Tracy Street. This new project would amount to a 30 percent reduction in square footage from last year’s proposal, making the smaller, three-story building with 29 apartments less expensive to build. The single-family homes that now occupy 12 and 16 Tracy Street would be demolished and the two lots merged to make way for the new building. Construction could begin next spring.
Meanwhile, plans for a new housing complex are moving forward across the river on Sykes Mountain Avenue in White River Junction. This project will be sited on vacant land north of Sykes Mountain Avenue and west of Lily Pond Road.
Construction could begin this fall on the three-story apartment building with 30 units, while a second phase could add between 12 and 15 townhouse-style units. The Hartford Planning Commission approved the project by a 5-1 vote on May 8.
