Avesta plans 27 new units

GORHAM — Avesta Housing Development Corp. is seeking permission to add 27 residences for ages 55 and up at its Ridgewood I facility off School Street.

Nate Howes, representing Avesta, and Sashie Misner of Gawron Turgeon Architects discussed the project with the town’s Planning Board Monday.  The board has not yet received an official application, Chairman Edward Zelmanow said.

Town Planner Tom Poirier said the board will decide whether a site walk is needed.

A vacant office space will be torn down to make way for the project. The proposal would be a four-story building with 22 one-bedroom apartments and five two-bedroom apartments. Solar panels would be installed on the roof.
