Poughkeepsie Hive Food Hall


Project icon

A vibrant downtown hub built on inclusive development and diverse food culture

The Poughkeepsie Hive will be a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive hub of activity for the City of Poughkeepsie and the mid-Hudson region. By providing a highly-visible attractor along the city’s east-bound arterial, the Hive will support increased traffic in the downtown neighborhood and will be a standard-bearer for ethical development in Poughkeepsie. The project will cultivate culinary entrepreneurship, develop food literacy and access, and tap into a robust network of regional  farms, purveyors, and vendors. Partnering with the Poughkeepsie-based builders and developers at Baxter Built, the Hudson Valley Design Lab is participating directly in the development and programming at the Hive to support its long term community engagement.

The Hive is an adaptive reuse project designed to celebrate the rich history of two historic buildings, and will include a fresh food market, food hall vendors, commissary and teaching kitchen, a craft brewery, co-working space, and 28 residential units.
