Montpelier affordable housing complex opens

January 4, 2019

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — An affordable housing complex in the French Block section of Vermont’s capital city has opened.

The Times Argus reports leaders gathered Thursday in Montpelier to celebrate the reopening of the 18-unit building. Officials say the $6.1 million complex will help low-income families and the homeless. Partners in the project included TD Bank, Housing Vermont and NeighborWorks.

Mayor Anne Watson says the complex will “provide a foundation for people to pursue the life they want to live, whether that’s starting a family or getting a job they want or pursuing an education.”

State Historic Preservation Officer Laura Trieschmann says the building was closed in 1938 after the owner determined it was too expensive to operate.
