||Conway Pines Apartments
Over the last 20 years, the Mount Washington Valley region has seen a rapid expansion in commercial growth, specifically in the retail and hospitality industries. Housing for the workers, however, has not kept pace, forcing many workers to travel long distances to their place of employment. Conway Pines Apartments was created to begin to address this overwhelming need. Nestled amongst mature pines, Conway Pines Apartments is located on Route 16 just a short distance from Conway Village and many local employers. The Shur Fine Shopping Plaza, with a grocery store, a bank, and many other retailers, is conveniently located directly across the street.
The idea for
this project, which began to take shape in 2008, was to not only
develop housing for the local work force, but to develop one
of the “greenest” buildings in the valley. This resulted in full geo thermal (exchange) heating and cooling, a 43kW solar system, and a super insulated shell using a combination of spray foam, blow in fiberglass and rigid foam on the exterior. The building was sited for optimal solar gain and 12 four hundred foot deep wells were drilled to supply water for the geo exchange system. All apartment residents have individual control of heating and cooling within their apartment.
Apartments offers very spacious one, two and three bedroom apartments.
The building provides an elevator for handicap access to all
floors. Many of the units will have views of Mount Washington
in the winter months. Along with laundry rooms on each floor,
there is a beautiful community room for the enjoyment of the
residents. For the children, an adventure playground sits on
the edge of the pine woods.
