Officials gathered on September 22nd to celebrate the grand opening of the Safford Commons housing complex. The Woodstock Community Trust, Twin Pines Housing Trust and Housing Vermont partnered to develop the new affordable housing located just outside of downtown Woodstock, Vt.
The project, located on an 8-acre site, included the construction of 10 buildings with 24 apartments and the redevelopment of a former Grange Hall/church building into four apartments. Twenty-three of the apartments are available for low-income households. Safford Commons consists of 10 one-bedroom, 16 two-bedroom and 2 three-bedroom units. The apartments feature front porches and energy efficient design and materials.
Duncan Wisniewski Architecture was the architect on the project, and DEW Construction Corp. served as the general contractor.
