October 22, 2010New road paves way for Kingston-Ulster housing project

TOWN OF ULSTER — A construction road leading to the site where the Hudson Landing housing development will stand opened on Thursday,  formally starting the project’s 15-year building process.

About 50 people gathered for a ceremony off state Route 32, near Frank Sottile Boulevard, in the town of Ulster to mark the occasion.

The road,  called Hudson Landing Boulevard, will carry construction vehicles to the site along the Hudson River shore where 1,658 housing units are to be built. The 535-acre property, formerly owned by Tilcon Inc., a mining company, straddles the border of Kingston and the town of Ulster, with most of it in Kingston.

“I have never been prouder to be the mayor of Kingston than I am right now,” Mayor James Sottile, a strong supporter of the project, said at the ceremony, his voice choking up.  “For me, as mayor, this is a dream come true.”
