October 22, 2010Road opens for construction vehicles headed to site of large-scale housing project on Hudson River

TOWN OF ULSTER - A construction road officially opened today leading into a site where a large-scale housing complex is to be built on the Hudson River banks over a 15 year period.

About 50 people gathered during a road opening ceremony off state Route 32 in the town of Ulster, near Frank Sottile Boulevard. The road will carry construction vehicles to the site where the Hudson Landing, a 1,658-unit housing complex, is to be built.

“I have never been prouder to be the mayor of Kingston than i am right now,” said Mayor James Sottile,  who has been a strong supporter of the housing project first proposed eight years ago.

Before AVR Acquisition Corp. of Yonkers can start building the development it will need to get site plan approvals for the first phase of the project. No plans have been submitted to Kingston’s Planning Office.

Developers gave no timetable today on when those plans would be submitted.
