Project Description

“City Center” is a mixed-income, mixed-use development project. The project will be funded through a combination of public, private, and conventional funding sources. This vacant parcel of land was previously the site of a large mixed-use building housing 6 retail stores, including the anchor business Fanny Farmer Candy Shop, and multiple apartments.

Due to its location, the development will provide convenient, affordable and workforce-housing options for staff at the new Orange Community College located across the street as well as for nurses from the city’s largest and growing employer, St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, which is just blocks away

This transit-oriented development will also help serve the growing number of commuters living in Orange County. The City of Newburgh is situated on the west bank of the Hudson River approximately 70 miles north of New York City, with a ferry line that connects directly with Metro-North Railroad. It’s also conveniently located near Stewart International Airport.

The project incorporates green technologies (including a green roof and solar panels) and energy efficient building practices, consistent with the requirements of the historic district including: aesthetically pleasing building details such as brick veneer and oversized windows. All units will be handicap accessible and will include an array of amenities for the tenants.

City Center has the potential to not only meet the growing need for quality affordable and workforce housing, but to also become a downtown anchor spurring additional investment in the City of Newburgh.
