Tallest Building in Vermont

The shortest building I’ll be running is Decker Towers in Burlington, Vermont. It stands 124 feet tall and has 11 stories. The orange and white brick apartment building was constructed by Pizzagalli in 1971. It is owned and managed by the Burlington Housing Authority.

The building consists of 161 one bedroom or efficiency apartments for disabled individuals and senior citizens. There is a dining area and a library, and the top floor offers a sitting area. Outside, there is small community garden. A tenant organization holds monthly dinners, holiday events, and bingo for the residents. Burlington Housing Authority’s Neighborhood Networks Technology Center is also located in the tower. It offers free computer access to all residents of subsidized housing in Burlington.
