Major Construction Project Nearly Underway In Poughkeepsie
Work is nearly underway on the new One Dutchess Ave in the City of Poughkeepsie, while progress has stalled on the town-owned portion of the project. Medium reports the property, once home to the A.C. Dutton Lumber Company, will be a mix of commercial and residential property right on the banks of the Hudson River.
Originally slated to cover property in both the City and Town of Poughkeepsie, the Town Board voted down their 3.8-acre portion of the job siting the scope of the project and a lack of parking. The board also found the snow removal plan to be inadequate. The original plan was to put 84 residential units on that part of the site. Work on the 11 acre City of Poughkeepsie property is nearly underway where there will be 300 apartments.
The job will be done in two phases, 139 units spread out over three buildings will be followed by an additional 161. There will be a fitness center, library, community room and sauna. The second phase will also add around 14,000 square feet of retail space.
