Maple Street Housing

Project icon

Poughkeepsie, New York, USA

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 has 40 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, and is organized around a new north-south public pedestrian street that seeks to reconnect downtown Poughkeepsie to the larger city. Multiple shared entries along the new street promote 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. Maple Street Housing opened in 2019.
