Future Project: Woodstock Workforce Housing

AHEAD Inc. has purchased 7.8 acres of undeveloped land in North Woodstock with plans for a phased multi-family development. Phase I will likely include 2 three-story, 20-unit apartment blocks of 1- and 2-bedroom units. This affordable workforce housing will serve very low- and low-income working individuals and families. Phase II will likely include the addition of 3 8-unit buildings of two- and three-bedroom townhouse style units and handicap accessible flats serving families at or below 60% of Grafton County area median income. Upon full build-out, this project will add a total of up to 64 units of new affordable housing to the Lincoln/Woodstock housing market. Predevelopment work is underway. 



Future Project: Bethlehem Workforce Housing

Bethlehem Workforce Housing will be new construction, consisting of 14 two-bedroom and 14 three-bedroom townhouse style apartments; two-bedroom units will be 1,120 square feet, three-bedrooms will be 1,540 square feet. The development will be condensed to 4 buildings, each containing 7 apartments. There are two fully accessible single level units: 1 two-bedroom and 1 three-bedroom. The project will also include a 700 square foot community building. Units will serve a range of income restricted households, from low-income to market rate. Unit rents include heat, hot water and cooking utilities. Construction is projected to start spring 2019, with completion in early 2020.
