Gossen Bachman Architects, the designers of Union Square, containing 58 affordable and market rate rental apartments in Windsor, Vermont, have been awarded a John M. Clancy Award for Socially Responsible Housing from the Boston Society of Architects for its recent renovation. 

The award recognizes excellence in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of socially responsible housing. The award's jury noted that Union Square's entire neighborhood is revitalized by the historic buildings' renovation. 

Project funding sources include VHFA, federal and state housing and historic tax credits, HUD, HOME, USDA Rural Development, the VT Community Development Program, energy efficiency funding, Neighborworks, federal Section 1602 housing credit exchange funds, the Federal Home Loan Bank and the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board.  The project was developed by Housing Vermont and the Rockingham Area Land Trust (now the Windham and Windsor Housing Trust) and is managed by Stewart Property Management.
