Projects In Development
RuralEdge is constantly seeking ways to expand our portfolio and rehabilitate the existing portfolio to create housing that is both quality and perpetually affordable. Here are just some of our projects currently underway:
Brightlook Apartments is an 18-unit general occupancy building, located off Summer Street in St. Johnsbury, that was recently purchased by RuralEdge. The building was originally a hospital and was renovated into apartments in the early 1970s. Our short-term goals for the building are to address any deficiencies in the mechanical systems and upgrade the energy efficiency, where possible.
Burkeland Lane (formerly West Burke Housing) is a 15 unit rental housing development, nine of the units are senior housing and six are multi-family units. RuralEdge is currently securing funding for the property, with plans for a larger development that would include the construction of eight additional units of multi-family housing.
Construction has begun on the rehabilitation of the three duplexes, as well as the construction of eight additional units, both at the top of the hill at Burkeland Lane.
St. Johnsbury Accessory Buildings
This is a project located in St. Johnsbury with locations at 759 Railroad Street and 138 Cherry Street. When complete, it will consist of seven units of general occupancy rental housing. 759 Railroad is a single-family home that will be renovated to create one, three-bedroom unit on the first and second floor and a studio, ADA unit in the walkout basement. 138 Cherry was damaged by fire in April 2021. As a result, the building is vacant. It has fire, smoke, and water damage, but is in good condition structurally. The building’s five, one-bedroom units will be renovated to create four two-bedroom units and one one-bedroom unit.
