Sepiessa Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

The Island Housing Trust held a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 13th to celebrate the completion of three newly constructed Sepiessa rental apartments at 12 Clam Point Road in West Tisbury.¬† The Sepiessa apartments represent our community’s latest effort to address the island’s critical workforce housing need, especially among households with lower incomes.

Philippe Jordi, Executive Director¬† thanked the many generous donors, the Dukes County Regional Housing Authority, Town of West Tisbury’s Community Preservation Committee, FHLB Boston, Edgartown National Bank, Drews Cove Builders, South Mountain Company, and many others who made the project possible.

Those who attended the ceremony were given an opportunity to tour these truly affordable apartments designed by South Mountain Company and built by Drews Cove Builders to the highest MassSave energy efficiency standards.  Photographs of the ceremony and the Sepiessa apartments at various stages of development can be viewed at our Facebook page.
