TCE provided survey, design, permitting and construction administration services for the new $3M Jericho Market which included renovating a 12,800 square foot garage built in the 1980’s into an 18,000 square foot highly efficient building with all new mechanical systems. TCE designed and permitted all new utilities and site features including an innovative on-site septic treatment system, new potable water supply system, ADA compliant parking, LED exterior lighting, stormwater treatment and landscaping.
This long awaited project was a team effort with PeakCM, Gardener-Kilcoyne Architects, and many others. TCE has been involved with redevelopment of the Jericho-Underhill Riverside Flats Village area (aka the Flats) and the former Villeneuve Sawmill for over 15 years. This flagship project showcases what can be done when former industrial uses are re-purposed around a carefully planned vision. With TCE’s assistance the landowner, developer, and contractor were able to convert this former truck maintenance garage into a beautiful new, and locally owned, 5th store under the direction of Mike Comeau who also operates the Shelburne Market, Richmond Market and Beverage, Johnson’s Sterling Market, and the Village Market of Waterbury. The market includes a deli and offers local products from grass fed beef, local seasonal produce, and Vermont wines and cheeses. The Jericho Market is truly an asset to the Jericho and Underhill community and we hope it is just the beginning of great things to come for the Flats!
The Town of Jericho has recently adopted a new Town Plan and Form Based Code for the Riverside Flats area. With the new regulating plan the Town’s vision for a new vibrant village center with a mixture of housing types, businesses, and other activities is beginning to take shape. Since 2001, TCE has participated in this zoning process, assisted both the Town and the landowner with planning and design tasks for the 20 acres surrounding this former sawmill that was shut down in 2001. On November 2, 2016 TCE’s president, Jeremy Matosky and the Jericho Town Planner, Katherine Sonnick, showcased the Sawmill Redevelopment Project at the 2016 Vermont Developers Conference hosted by White and Burke which brought together local developers, realtors, engineers, planners, and consultants to talk about the challenges in developing a new future for Vermont that is sustainable and well planned. We look forward to continuing the conversation and helping to see the vision for this unique property become a reality.
