Named by the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce as the Building Project of the Year for 2013, Woodstock Commons is a remarkable blended affordable housing development for seniors, working families, and artists. This clustered complex of 53 units was one of the first nine projects in New York registered in the LEED Neighborhood Development Pilot Program. The project, which was completed with geo-thermal construction, is also eligible for US Green Building Council’s gold level certification. Working with RUPCO to develop this project in an in-fill site behind the Bradley Meadows shopping plaza, we helped enhance the community, bring more children to the school district, and drive more customers to local businesses. The buildings comprise less than one-third of the site. The remainder of the parcel will remain forested with trails.
