Applications will be accepted October 1, 2019 for RUPCO’s Energy Square, 20 Cedar Street, an Energy Efficient Live/Work Community in Midtown Kingston, New York with Occupancy starting March 2020.

Energy Square is an Innovative development in heart of midtown Kingston with 56 Affordable Homes with Retail, Community-based Arts Education and Job Training. The building design incorporates geothermal power sources and energy-saving features to make Energy Square Hudson Valley’s First “Net Zero for Living” Affordable Apartments

September 25, 2019 – Kingston, NY – The new home for the Center for Creative Education (CCE), along with 56 mixed income apartments will start occupancy on March 1, 2020. Applications for the apartments will be accepted starting October 1, 2019, and be due by December 5, 2019 for occupancy March 2020. Applications will enter a lottery on January 3, 2020 for tenant review and selection for RUPCO’s Energy Square’s 56 affordable rental apartments in the 5-story building. There will be 2 studios, 44 one-bedroom, 6 two-bedroom, and 4 three-bedroom apartments. Two apartments will be reserved for homeless adults and another 7 apartments will be set aside for homeless young adults with services funded through the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative, which provides operational funding to providers for the development and operation of supportive housing for New Yorkers identified as homeless with special needs or other life challenges. Supportive services will be provided by Family of Woodstock and the Center for Creative Education (CCE). Utilities which include heat, hot water and electricity will be free to residents. Amenities include energy star appliances, laundry on premise, community room with WIFI, green rooftop with outdoor pavilion, on-site parking, and a live-in superintendent.

Energy Square was born when CCE approached RUPCO looking for space to grow. CCE’s mission is to enrich the social and cultural awareness of youth and community through arts, wellness and education. They will provide comprehensive community-based art and workforce development job training for young adults ages 18 to 25. CCE will also share the street-level commercial space with their two tenants: a retail market and a café, which be open to the public. The café will also work in conjunction with their workforce development job training center.

Energy Square is a unique, sustainable and exciting development that breathes life into an outdated property and makes it possible for people of all ages and income levels to call one of Kingston’s most vibrant city neighborhoods home. Rents which include utilities for free, (heat, hot water and electricity) range from $441-$1,428. These homes are affordable to residents with earnings below Ulster County’s area median income.

Energy Square meets a “net-zero for living” standard which combines geothermal and solar power sources and energy efficient features to make it HCR’s first affordable housing development in the Hudson Valley that produces as much energy as it uses.

Energy Square is constructed on the 1.3-acre site of the former Mid City Lanes bowling alley at 20 Cedar Street. Its location is in the heart of Kingston’s Midtown district within walking distance to jobs, healthcare, library, retail, and restaurants.
