Maple Street Affordable Housing


Project icon

Poughkeepsie, New York, US

Poughkeepsie’s downtown has been in decline for several decades. This is due in part to two east-west high-speed arterial roads built during Urban Renewal that physically separate Historic Main street from surrounding residential neighborhoods. This workforce housing project is organized around a new north-south public pedestrian street that seeks to reconnect downtown Poughkeepsie to the larger city. Pocket parks that extend from the street are accessible to residents and the larger neighborhood alike, promoting greater safety and community. The site is adjacent to the 1757 Glebe House, the oldest remaining house in the city, and the inspiration for the project’s defining saltbox roof.
