Modular Houses to Inhabit Former Ethan Allen Mfg. Site

WCAX-TV reports the site of a former furniture factory in Randolph, Vermont, is being developed in two phases to provide affordable housing in a neighborhood project headed by the Randolph Area Community Development Corporation. Originally the site of the Randolph Furniture Company, which was founded in the 1800’s, the Ethan Allen Furniture Company left the premises in 1991, and the property has been vacant since. The development’s first phase includes two new apartment complexes and transforming the furniture company’s original bookkeeping building into a total of 14 apartments. The second phase will be 22 modular houses to be sold to qualified applicants as part of this $3 million project funded by the state and federal governments. Says Julie Iffland with the Randolph Area Community Development Corporation, commenting on the project: “Not only are we cleaning up a site that otherwise is a detriment to the community, but now we are providing housing that the community needs — especially post (Hurricane) Irene, and it is essentially going to be a little neighborhood unto itself.”
