In 2014, Wiemann Lamphere was hired to develop a master plan for the redevelopment of several lots in downtown Winooski. The master-plan represented a total build-out of 200,000 square feet including commercial and retail uses, hospitality, and various styles of residential housing. The first phase of this master-plan is the design and construction of the City Lights residence Project.
This 27 unit, multi-residential building features an onsite parking garage, a roof terrace for a garden and a modest sized lease space on the ground floor. This project takes a small urban site and looks to maximize its development potential in a cost effective manner. The design of the project features a unique saw tooth profile creating an interesting architectural feature. The saw tooth profile was developed with the concept that the sloped roofs would be ideal for integrating a series of solar panels on the roof while also allowing for cathedral ceilings on the top floor units. The building will also include an attached overhang meant to replace the bus stop enclosure that is currently occupying that space. Construction of this unique property is planned for mid to late 2016!
