Bayview Crossing Breaks Ground

South Hero, VT – State leaders joined Cathedral Square and the nonprofit Champlain Islanders Developing Essential Resources (C.I.D.E.R.) for a groundbreaking ceremony for Bayview Crossing, an affordable housing community for older adults in South Hero, on Sept. 22.

ReArch Company is serving as the construction manager on this 38,000sf, 30-unit community targeting adults age 55 and over. This space will also house the new home office for C.I.D.E.R., which provides transportation for older adults and people with disabilities, and meals, wellness programs, and accessibility improvements throughout Grand Isle County.

Bayview Crossing’s design team of Wiemann Lamphere Architects and Buermann Engineering designed the building to consist of wood frame construction with slab on grade floor systems, engineered wood truss systems, clapboard style siding, and a combination of flat and sloped roof systems. Bayview will be solar-ready and meet Efficiency Vermont’s High-Performance Certification, with a highly efficient building envelope and advanced mechanical and electrical systems.

The project’s construction will last 11.5 months, with an occupancy target of September 2022.
