$3.9M grant will help Housing Trust redevelop Columbian Avenue Apartments

The Housing Trust of Rutland County received a $3.9 million grant from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board for the redevelopment of the Columbian Avenue apartments and adjacent lots to create East Creek Commons.  This grant is the first secured funding for the project budget of $11.2 million. 

The project will include a complete renovation of nine units at 194-198 Columbian Avenue. The adjacent properties are currently under option and include a gut renovation of 200 Columbian Ave. with expansion on two now vacant lots, 202-208 Columbia Avenue, creating an additional 14 units.

East Creek Commons will also feature common indoor and outdoor spaces including a designated area for children with a bike track and playset. The project will also clean up environmental hazards on the adjacent land, creating safe affordable housing for residents.
