EAST END APARTMENTS – Completed in 2018 

East End Apartments epitomizes a tri-sector approach among several nonprofits, private investors, and government sectors to transform the Newburgh community through building rehabilitation and the creation of integrated housing. RUPCO partnered with NYS Homes and Community Renewal, the Newburgh Community Land Bank, the City of Newburgh, and private investors, to transform 15 abandoned sites into safe, sustainable and affordable homes. The collaborative effort sparked rejuvenation in the City’s East End Historic District – the second largest historic district in New York State.

East End houses 45 mixed-income apartments at 15 addresses situated in a four-block radius north of Broadway. These newly renovated homes preference middle-income families, artists, homeless youth, and veterans in need. The cluster is conveniently located adjacent to the Broadway business and government corridor, SUNY Orange (Newburgh campus), Mount Saint Mary College, and St. Luke Cornell Hospital. The multi-site development also includes 3,000 square feet of community space known as “The Hub.” This multi-purpose area hosts a community policing sub-station, studio/gallery space for artists, and meeting space for after-school activities.

East End benefits from an Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI) award that allows for local nonprofit, Bridges of New York, to provide case management services for seven residents (formerly homeless young adults ages 18-25 and veterans in need.)

RUPCO restored the 19th-century traditional row homes with historic preservation and energy efficiency in mind, paying attention to architectural details and NYS EnergyStar® for Homes and LEED for Homes standards. The NYS and Federal Historic Credits each provide a
20% credit incentive for the rehabilitation of historic properties that are listed in the NYS National Register of Historic Places. The programs are administered through the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and the National Park Service. RUPCO’s vision of
creating high-quality housing for the neighborhood also included job opportunities for residents. General contractor, Affordable Housing Concepts, utilized local tradesmen and hired dozens of Newburgh residents for its construction crew.
