Project Description

Monument View Multifamily Redevelopment



MSK provided site development and permitting services for an affordable housing project intended to increase the availability of high-quality rental properties in the downtown Bennington area, helping to resolve a gap between workforce demand and housing availability. The project, initiated in 2013 and completed in 2019, was a collaboration between affordable-housing development nonprofits Housing Vermont and Shires Housing. MSK redesigned existing stormwater infrastructure to meet stormwater permitting requirements and successfully obtained a Vermont stormwater discharge permit for 0.55 acres of new impervious surface on 2.20 acres, the product of five new duplexes and two multifamily dwellings. MSK’s stormwater design includes mix of bioretention techniques that reduce site runoff and treat stormwater in areas disconnected from municipal infrastructure, and subsurface retention chambers that treat runoff before releasing it to the municipal stormwater system, helping to reduce and remediate discharge into a nearby tributary of the Walloomsac River.
