The first phase of 81 units of senior housing is well underway at the 200 acre site (100 acres preserved as dedicated open space) on the eastern side of Route. 22 in the Town of Pawling, just north of Hannaford’s and M&T Bank. This major project for Pawling will yield 400 units of senior housing, 65,600 square foot medical office building, 200,000 square feet of retail space and a hotel.
Upon completion of Phase One, Castagna Realty has plans to build 110 senior town homes, a 65,600 square foot medical office building., 100 units of assisted living to follow depending on market demand.
“Upon completion of this 5-7 year project, 800 permanent jobs and 1,200 construction jobs will have been generated and more than $4.5 million generated in annual taxes for Pawling” stated Alex Wong, Senior Project Manager for Castagna Commerce Park.
Construction of a new sewer line has begun on Route 22 and will connect this site to existing wastewater infrastructure. Castagna Realty Co., Inc. has funded this privately with some aid from New York State in recognition of the need for economic development in eastern Dutchess County and the recognition of Castagna Commerce Park as a New York State Priority project in 2013. Water will be provided by a private well system. Upgrades to the entrance off Route 22 will include an access lane and traffic light.
Applications for senior housing will be provided toward the end of 2015 with the planned opening for Phase I scheduled for late spring of 2016. More details about progress of this major development by Castagna Realty, Inc. will be released in the coming months.
