The Village at Franklin Park is a high end senior housing facility consisting of 96 units in the Town of St. Albans. This project is located on an abandoned farm adjacent to Interstate 89 and presented some unique permitting issues. Cross Consulting Engineers was retained by GSD Development to design and permit this project. The design is unique and consists of a village like layout with compact urban design, park like atmosphere in the center, small setbacks to buildings and boundaries and short driveways. Over thirty of the units have been constructed and more are being constructed each year.
Our services included civil engineering design, boundary surveys, stormwater management, street design, landscaping, erosion control and street lighting. This project included an involved Act 250 Land Use Permit process and extensive work to comply with the Vermont Common Interest Ownership Act through the use of footprint lots.
This attractive project is highly visible from Interstate 89 but is set back significantly from the highway to provide a positive viewing experience by travelers along the Interstate. This project is arguably the most attractive residential housing project in Franklin County.
