Opened in October 2018, Allard Square offers 39 one- and two-bedroom apartments, with a mix of affordable and market-rate rents. Amenities include a lounge, community room with kitchen, exercise room, activity room, elevators, laundry facilities, covered parking and on-site storage. Three apartments are fully ADA accessible, and all apartments are adaptable. Located in South Burlington on Market Street near University Mall, the building was designed to meet Efficiency Vermont’s High-Performance Multifamily Building standard. Rent includes heat, air conditioning, hot water, laundry and electricity.

Allard Square is named after Cathedral Square’s longest-tenured resident, Doris Allard, who lived at the original Cathedral Square residence in Burlington, adjacent to the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, for nearly 40 years.

This property offers tax-credit and market-rate homes and some subsidized apartments. Allard Square also accepts Section 8 vouchers and is a SASH location, with an on-site SASH coordinator.
