THE QUINTESSENTIAL LIVE, WORK, AND PLAY PROJECT IN DOWNTOWN POUGHKEEPSIE
COMING SPRING 2025
Approved in June 2022 by the city Planning Board, RiverSong is repurposing the former vacant Dutchess County Board of Elections building into a vibrant mixed-use community development. The project was intentionally designed to leverage the intent of the newly enacted Poughkeepsie Innovation District (PID) zoning ordinance, which focuses on Poughkeepsie's City Center, the economic heart of the Queen City, to ensure that targeted improvements will have far-reaching effects on the economic well-being of all Poughkeepsie residents.
Live in one of the sixty-six beautiful new one or two bedroom apartments units in the heart of the queen city. 10% of the units will be permanently affordable. Eight stories tall with views of the Hudson River, the Catskill Mountains, and the Berkshire Mountains, you won’t know where to look first. Penthouse units have private spiral stairs to reserved outdoor rooftop spaces. All units have balconies and roof top access with amenities that include a community garden, a dog park and outdoor seating. Also enjoy the fitness center, self-storage lockers and secured parking.
Work is easy from RiverSong. Reserve an office pod, retrieve your vehicle from our secured puzzle parking system, or walk to mass transit. Wherever you must go, you won’t want to be gone long. The project will employ over 100 construction workers during construction and then dozens of new permanent jobs will be created by a brewery / distillery restaurant located on the first two floors of the complex.
Play in RiverSong or in the neighborhood. Cannon St has quickly become an entertainment destination, but you won’t have to walk very far to experience the fantastic opportunities the queen city has to offer. After you’ve had cocktail and a bite to eat in the restaurant, venture onto Cannon St. Within a block of your new apartment are more restaurants, breweries, a wine bar, night clubs, a food hall, an opera house and award-winning event venues.
The RiverSong development team has a two-decade track record of success with community-oriented, conscientious development including awards for community builder of the year, trailblazer of the year, visionary of the year, hero of the month and for improving the quality of life for the Poughkeepsie community. The projects completed by the development team have also won numerous awards for quality. RiverSong will be another award-winning project that advances the downtown revitalization and compliments previous projects and community investment.
