Winooski Falls chosen for 2008 Livable Communities Award
Winner: Winooski Falls
Developer, More Than 250 Units
By HallKeen, The Braverman Company, and New Boston Fund
Winooski Falls is for people who want an urban setting and small-town ambiance. The multi-building development, which caters to university students and the general public, is close to public transportation and a riverfront walkway leading to 100 acres of parkland. This innovative mixed-use development on the banks of the Winooski River in northwestern Vermont incorporates a series of four well-appointed residential and commercial structures bridging downtown Winooski and the riverfront.
The development is widely regarded as a model for shaping a sustainable community for tenants of all ages, abilities, and income levels. Key to the development`s appeal is the emphasis on pedestrian access and flow. Together, a riverfront walkway and easy public transportation options connect residents to vital services, shopping, restaurants, a college and a university campus, the largest hospital in the state, and downtown Burlington.
The wide range of energy-efficient, universally designed units offers affordable, conveniently located lifestyle choices that encourage interaction among community residents-all tucked away amid beautiful Green Mountain landscapes.
