Highland Woods Housing

Berkshire Housing Development Corporation and the Women’s Institute for Housing and Economic Development entered into an option on a four acre parcel of land owned by Williams College. The College donated the land for the purposes of developing affordable rental housing for residents displaced Tropical Storm Irene as well as others in the northern Berkshires. One hundred and sixty mobile homes were destroyed by Irene, which displaced close to 300 people. Berkshire Housing partnered partnering with WIHED to develop 40 units on the site.
