The redevelopment of the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory is the anchor project in Hudson River Housing's work to revitalize the Middle Main Street corridor. We renovated this three story, 22,000 square foot building as mixed-use, with two thirds consisting of apartments, and one third as a commercial community hub.
First Floor/Lower Level:
Poughkeepsie Open Kitchen (POK): a shared-use commercial kitchen with affordable dry and cold storage available for kitchen members at the lower level.
North River Roasters Coffee House & Community Hub: North River Roasters is opened Mon-Fri from 8am-4pm and Sundays 10am - 2pm. During North River Roaster's operating hours, the Hub is open for patrons to sit and enjoy coffee and treats. Outside of operating hours, it is available for rent to community members.
Earth, Wind & Fuego: Serving breakfast and lunch Mon-Fri 8am-2pm. Healthy meals, locally-sourced, and affordably priced. Gluten/soy/dairy/sugar-free options available.
