Located just off Route 15 in Essex Junction, Whitcomb Terrace is next door to St. Lawrence Catholic Church and just minutes from Fletcher Allen Health Care’s Fanny Allen Campus and St. Michael’s College. The apartments at Whitcomb Terrace are designed to provide people of all ages and incomes the opportunity to live in housing that meets accessible design standards. Often referred to as barrier-free or universal design, the goal is to maximize the flexibility of the space to benefit all residents regardless of their physical abilities. Although preference is given to persons under the age of 62 requiring a fully accessible apartment, Whitcomb Terrace serves a mix of disabled and non-disabled residents. Whitcomb Terrace opened in 2005.
