Projects in Progress
Number of Units: 8 apartments, River Gallery School, and storefront spaces for Windham Wines
The Wilder Block has undergone a complete renovation after the devastating fire of December, 2004, and is once again contributing to the health and economic vitality of downtown Brattleboro. It provides eight light-filled one-bedroom apartments, accessible space for the River Gallery School, and street level commercial space downtown, home to Windham Wines. BACLT has been honored with a Vermont Community Development Program Achievement Award as well as a Preservation Trust of Vermont award.
Number of Units: 29 apartments and home to the Windham Housing Trust's new offices

With ten busy months of intensive construction work nearly complete, BACLT/WHT will move its offices to the first floor on December 7th. We look forward to welcoming our neighbors into the bright and cheery new apartments beginning in January 2008.
Which building is it? This is a long, low lying, reddish-brown building on Birge street adjacent to the slate-shingled Estey Organ buildings. This renovation is WHT's biggest and boldest housing development project undertaken to date; it will create more new housing units than were created in BACLT/WHT's first 19 years. The building is characterized by post-and beam construction, large windows, high ceilings, and original (restored) warehouse wood floors on the second story.
Number of Units: 8 single rooms, plus a resident manager apartment
Renovations on Worden House were completed in August 2007 with full occupancy in December 2007. Which building is it? This is the beautiful, newly renovated, creamy-yellow building on Western Avenue located on the left after passing over the Whetstone Brook. The house, located at 804 Western Avenue, has long served as a boarding house for residents. The building includes seven single rooms with shared kitchen and living areas in a home-like setting. There is also a one-bedroom apartment for a resident manager.
Number of Units: 26 apartments for seniors, 7 townhouse-style rentals, 7 for-sale condominiums
Butterfield Common Senior Housing is one portion of a larger, intergenerational, mixed-income community. Seven townhouse-style rental units are complete, as are an additional seven for-sale units.. The project also includes a community center. Butterfield Common is located on a six-acre parcel of land that was donated to BACLT by Marlboro resident, Edie Mas.
