The project also undertakes the adaptive rehabilitation of Highpoint (the former United Methodist Church) and an adjacent building located at 257 Liberty St. The two currently vacant structures will be transformed into community space set to open in 2022. The church’s sanctuary area will be preserved and used for event space and other forms of community engagement. LYNC will provide daycare and job training opportunities at both buildings.

The 22 residential buildings range in size from 2490 to 7,775 square feet and are located on First, Chambers, DuBois, Johnston, Lander and Miller Streets.

The units will be affordable to individuals and families of mixed-income levels ranging from 30 – 70% Area Median Income (AMI).

East End II has received an Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI) award to provide ten units with rental assistance and supportive services for individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless with substance abuse disorders and those reentering the community from incarceration. RUPCO is collaborating with nonprofit Bridges of New York to provide case management services that include job training and guidance with daily living needs.

RUPCO partnered with NYS Homes & Community Renewal (NYSHCR), NYS Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation, Orange County, City of Newburgh, Newburgh Community Land Bank, and other nonprofits and private investors to jumpstart the $32 million mixed-use development in the historic East End neighborhood. This development is RUPCO’s second project in the river city. In 2018, the agency completed East End Apartments, a $15 million endeavor that historically preserved fifteen buildings that created 45 mixed-income apartments.
