ST. JOHNSBURY — Renovations to create apartments and commercial space are underway at 560 Railroad St. The Northern Forest Center is redeveloping the historic 15,000-square-foot property as part of its community revitalization work in St. Johnsbury. The project will create nine apartments with studio-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units and two commercial spaces. Rentals will be priced to serve median-income earners in the St. Johnsbury area. Interior demolition began in November 2023 and construction will begin in early 2024. Crews from EnviroVantage, based in Epping, N.H., have stripped the building of all interior finishes in preparation for structural upgrades before interior reconstruction begins.
