Luxury Housing Poughkeepsie Waterfront versus Kingston Waterfront
Why is housing and building on the Poughkeepsie waterfront going "gangbusters", but the Thomas Perna Hudson Landing Riverfront project on the Hudson River in Kingston is delayed for at least a year! Notice that the Poughkeepsie building projects rarely get bogged down with lengthy delays from Scenic Hudson types. Remember the long debates and delays from Scenic Hudson and the complaints about possible "View" problems for the residents of the other side of the river. Kingston and Ulster County taxpayers are losing out again in the housing and economic development wars. Someone at Hudson Landing should explain why their project is delayed another year while Poughkeepsie continues to build and dominate the upscale housing market.
