Anyone passing through White River Junction over the past several months would have likely noticed the rapid construction of a building on Maple Street across from the LISTEN Center and just across the Connecticut River from West Lebanon. This is Riverwalk Apartments, a 42-unit mixed-income housing project being constructed by DEW Braverman of WIlliston, VT, for Twin Pines Housing Trust and Evernorth of Burlington. The development marks the inaugural deployment of the Upper Valley Loan Fund, a housing fund established by investments from the region’s largest employers and managed by Evernorth.
On September 15, representatives from the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority, the Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast, and Vital Communities received a tour of the development from the project team.
The project is the epitome of smart growth development — a high-density, in-fill project with close proximity to schools, stores, and transit — and features a high-efficiency energy system with air source heat pumps and active energy recovery ventilation for improved air quality and insulation. Participants of the tour can also attest that the top-floor units offer some of the best views in the Upper Valley.
Applications for the units will open on October 2 through Twin Pines with a target move-in date for residents set for April 2024.
