As the driving force behind every action, the LIVE, WORK, and PLAY strategy has led to continued progress toward its vision for a booming Mid-Hudson economy. Below are a few examples of how past priority projects align with the LIVE WORK PLAY strategy and uphold the MHREDC's vision:
Tuxedo/Sloatsburg Corridor Revitalization Project
Sloatsburg, Rockland County
By the end of 2017, Tuxedo Hudson Management, LLC had invested over $5.5 Million to complete Phase 1 of its project to revitalize a section of the Route 17 corridor in the Village of Sloatsburg, Rockland County. The Company has renovated and adaptively reused vacant and/or underutilized properties to transform a blighted community into a multi-faceted tourist destination. A newly created complex, including a bike shop, event space, hotel, market and food truck, is now a hub of activity – drawing in tourists and local residents.
3D Printing Initiative at SUNY New Paltz
New Paltz, Ulster County
In October 2017, SUNY New Paltz welcomed leaders in state government, business and higher education to campus to break ground on a new Engineering Innovation Hub, a state-of-the-art facility that will help support and diversify the College’s rapidly growing engineering programs and support collaboration between the College and local industry. This academic building, projected to open in 2019, was made possible thanks to a $10 million award from Governor Andrew Cuomo’s NYSUNY2020 grant program.
LEGOLAND New York
Goshen, Orange County
In August 2018, more than 100 members of the media and special guests joined officials with Merlin Entertainments to get the first look at the eight themed “lands” that will make up the 150-acre LEGOLAND® New York Resort at the family theme park’s future site in Goshen, Orange County. The project was granted approval on its site by the Town of Goshen Planning Board in October 2017 and site work began. The project will create 800 construction jobs and 1,300 full-time, part-time and seasonal jobs and will open in 2020.
