City Development Director Natalie Quinn provided an update Wednesday to Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce on projects that have completed or begun construction in the city in the last few years.
Quinn also discussed large projects recently approved by the Planning Board, including Scenic Hudson headquarters at 58 Parker Avenue, the Wallace Campus development at 316 Main Street, and redevelopment of the former Up-To-Date department store building. Quinn closed with an overview of the ongoing PK4Keeps initiative that will culminate in an update the city’s Comprehensive Plan and zoning code later this year.
Last week, Mayor Rolison promoted Quinn to Development Director after the city resident had served as Planning Director.
Chris Kroner, principal at MASS Design Group, also presented at the breakfast to discuss the work of their storefront design studio since they opened their doors in Poughkeepsie five years ago. He discussed their immersive model of architectural practice, and how listening is inspiring a tailored approach for projects across the entire city.
The presentation specifically mentioned the work for the Fall Kill Trail Network, The Trolley Barn, Family Partnership Center, The YOU (Dutchess County Youth Opportunity Union), Corey Ingram Circle Champions Walk, and the College Hill Park Cistern.
