The City of Montpelier in partnership with Housing Vermont hired DEW to construct a state-of-the-art Transit Center, housing units and to extend a shared-use path.
Green Mountain Transit, owned by the City of Montpelier, operates out of the first level of the four-story building which is divided into two sections separated by a colored concrete and brick paver bus loop. The passenger terminal, is approximately 3,000 sf of enclosed transit space for ticketing, waiting areas, restrooms, staff kitchen, office, and rental space,
The upper three levels are 8,500 sf per story and include 30 affordable housing units, owned and operated by Housing Vermont. Exterior finishes include brick veneer, metal panels, and stone and wood accents, and storefront windows. The upper level features a roof-top deck that provides river and city views.
Another key component to this project is the shared-use path, owned by the City. The path, which extends through the site, connects Taylor Street to Main Street.
