Poughkeepsie, New York
This redevelopment initiative is being conducted by the MTA Metro-North Railroad with the collaboration of the City of Poughkeepsie, New York to set the stage for mixed use redevelopment of underutilized land adjacent to an historic rail terminal. The redevelopment sites have spectacular views of the Hudson River and enjoy direct access to waterfront amenities and the city’s downtown. Harriman is providing planning, urban design, zoning and community participation services while leading a multi-disciplinary team that is establishing feasibility and structuring the tools and steps ahead. Using three dimensional modeling, we are able to rapidly visualize potential changes and the relationships between transit, transit-related parking, and transit-oriented development.
