Recent Projects

Shelter Island has worked or is working as a principal or consultant on limited development projects in Hubbardston, Holden, Fitchburg, Winchester, Petersham, Rockport, Medway, Belchertown, Wilbraham and Westminster. (Prior to founding Shelter Island, Jedediah Mannis worked on nineteen residential developments as a developer and consultant, creating more than 700 acres of open space.)

Fiske Pond is a good example of how limited development works to preserve open space when the purchase price of a desireable parcel of land seems too high to allow its outright purchase and preservation.
