Burlington’s Development Review Board (DRB) gave final zoning approval to a proposal by Champlain Housing Trust (CHT) for a new 42-unit development in the city’s Old North End, Burlington Free Press staff writer April Burbank reported on October 29th.
The unanimous vote was cheered by CHT’s director of real estate development Amy Demetrowitz, “I think it’ll just really improve the aesthetics of the neighborhood, and it’ll bring just some really critical needed affordable housing to Burlington.”
According to the Free Press article, “The project represents a significant redevelopment of the area between Bright Street and Archibald Street by adding a three-story apartment building, two duplexes, a building with three units and a total of 44 parking spaces….The project will be organized as a co-op with one-to four-bedroom units…”
The project will involve the demolition of three existing buildings on Bright and Archibald Streets. CHT expects to begin construction in May of 2015.
