The Academy is a development of live, work, play concept in the heart of Poughkeepsie. Two abandoned buildings transformed into a fresh market and food hall with four vendor stalls, 64-seat restaurant, retail space, co-working space, event space and 28 affordable apartments. The existing structure remains along with a two-story, 12,000SF addition for the apartments that consist of studios, one and two bedrooms. All interior and exterior finishing performed in-house.
The 2nd floor event space known as Keepsake, is a unique wedding venue featuring a refined industrial style. The original steel trusses, exposed brick and overside industrial windows are offset by wood accents and skylights flooding the space with natural light. This space is known as the crown jewel of the development.
