Isles’ Approach: Isles is distributing “green”
affordable housing in communities throughout
the region. Isles preserves the
historical integrity of neighborhoods by saving
and renovating older homes as they tend to
be durable and long lasting.

When the PUMC team was onsite, Isles always has a few staff
members on site to work with us, so they can provide
instruction and guidance on whatever projects are ongoing.
The mill will ultimately comprise Isles’
headquarters, YouthBuild Institute, art studios,
housing, offices and other uses, while
demonstrating the feasibility of converting
historic factories to high-performing,
sustainable places to live, work and play.

Gardening on Academy StreetGardening on Academy Street
The Academy Place houses are adjacent to a city park, which needed a lot of
sprucing up so Lori and her team of volunteer gardeners came to the rescue.

The gazebo in the city park on
Academy street was sanded and
stained so it would hold up to the
weather and could be a nice, shady
place to relax overlooking the garden.
