By Warren Buckler taste in residential housing in America has apparently turned full Cycle. After struggling for years to escape the great buildings and narrow streets of the cities and building vast suburbs of single family Homes americans Are apparently returning to what they formerly scorned. They Are now building apartment houses in the suburbs. The new apartment houses according to a recent article in the new York times Are a changing the face of the in Freeport Long Island the times notes 12 builders put up four Story apartment houses within a year. Although National trends sometimes Manifest themselves More slowly in Vermont than elsewhere the demand for apartments in suburban areas or on the outskirts of towns is already it seems evident. Norman h. Greenberg announced earlier this summer his plans to build a 30-to-40-unit Garden Type apartment on the former Madden property on West main Street. A Brattleboro corporation whose presi Dent is Byron r. Brown followed suit this week with the announcement that it plans a an ultramodern Garden apartment Complex Quot at the Corner of Putney Road and Bradley Avenue in that town. And a controversy has been raging in Burlington for the past two weeks about proposed apartment buildings in the fashionable a Hill Section Quot of town. The reason for the growing popularity of apartments in suburban or even Rural areas where land for single family Homes would appear to be abundant Are several according to the times. Young couples move into the suburban apartments to avoid High City rents the times has found. Older couples whose children have left Home and who can to afford to maintain Large Homes prefer the convenience of a Small apartment away from the smoke and grime of the City. Parents move into them to be near children living in the suburbs and widows and widowers rent them to avoid the expense of Home ownership. Garden apartments seem to be the Type that Are catching on in Vermont. Garden apartments As Greenberg told Bennington Vil Lage trustees when he announced his plans this summer Are usually four to five room units in a two Story Structure that is surrounded by Large Lawn and Garden areas. The apartments planned by Greenberg will be in colonial style. The developers of the Brattleboro apartments say they plan tree shaded patios balconies and sliding Glass doors for each apartment. Controversy in Burlington arose this week when a Brookline mass. Developer requested permission of the zoning Board to build a 23-unit luxury apart ment House in an residential neighbourhood with Large old houses. Neighbors objected strenuously and one even called the proposed building a a tenement the zoning Board rejected the a plication but some City officials and real estate brokers admitted privately that More apartment House construction in the area was is no Market for the big House they noted so Many Are turned into Rooming houses or fraternity houses which do not enhance the Type of neighbourhood the residents want to preserve. The suspicions were confirmed several Days later when another builder submitted an application to build an apartment House in the same area. Another Type of apartment for which some observers feel there May some Day be a demand in Vermont is the condominium a Multi family building in which each occupant owns his own apartment and shares ownership of everything else including Halls lobby and swimming Pool. The largest in the world a 27-Story building with 1,056 dwelling units is now under construction in Honolulu. It will be finished by december.
