The county intends to work collaboratively with the chosen housing development firm and the City of Kingston, to redevelop the site, consistent with the community's vision of the project.

Project Goals:

  • Create residential opportunities within a range of income levels in the County with availability to all generations.
  • Provide a broad level of affordability for new housing development to ensure access to affordable housing by lower income households while meeting affordable workforce housing needs and including supportive housing.
  • Include with the project needed support and recreation amenities that meet the needs of the population mix.
  • Identify, and if practical, create space for commercial opportunities and community programming particularly appropriate to the site's setting among nursing and mental health related facilities.
  • Ensure seamless access to public transit and include pedestrian connections.
  • Recognize the site's assets particularly views of the Catskills while overcoming it's challenges such as grades and access.
  • Meet the County's goals for a Green New Deal with the use of renewable energy and the utilization of green building practices in both materials and design.

It is anticipated that a mixed-finance funding program will be needed for the project, that includes:

  • Site planning and location of suitable building sites.
  • Design and development of new, mixed income buildings, public spaces, and parking.
  • Demolition of existing on-site buildings.
  • Accommodation of special needs populations including support services.
