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 planned as a commercial community hub. Our vision is to bring the rich bounty of arts and food in the Hudson Valley into the city of Poughkeepsie, and to use it as an educational tool and community connector. We've made amazing strides over the past year, securing anchor tenants and formalizing our plans. The Underwear Factory has been opened since March 30th, 2017, and we want you to be part of it!

coffee. Outside of operating hours, it is available for rent to community members.

We are capitalizing on this building's history as an innovative center of industry, and bringing it back to life as a dynamic and inclusive community space and a great place to live. This project is ripe with opportunity for those seeking a forward-thinking, innovative space to collaborate, build community, and achieve their #poughtential!
