Title: The Arlington: Poughkeepsie’s Green Development Redefining Sustainable Living
Poughkeepsie’s walkable Arlington Town Center has recently undergone a remarkable transformation with the introduction of The Arlington, a carbon-neutral-ready community that is now leasing units in both of its new buildings. Developed by Dutchess County’s family-owned business PAZ Management, The Arlington is setting a new standard for sustainable living and community impact.
The development consists of two buildings: the Lofts at the School, a repurposed Arthur S. May School building, and the Flats on Raymond, a newly constructed building on Raymond Avenue. While the Lofts at the School have been 90 percent occupied since earlier this year, the Flats on Raymond have recently announced their readiness for occupancy. Together, these buildings offer 63 one- and two-bedroom rental residences with open floor plans ranging from 651 to 1,462 square feet.
Designed as a green development, The Arlington was financed by NY Green Bank, a division of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. As one of four NY Green Bank-funded energy efficiency transactions in Dutchess County, The Arlington is in the process of obtaining a National Green Building Standard Certification.
The Arlington places a strong emphasis on sustainability, with a focus on resource efficiency and outdoor spaces adorned with native plantings. The development is carbon-neutral-ready, meaning there are zero fossil fuels onsite. It follows Energy Star standards, utilizing 100 percent electric and energy-efficient systems. Additionally, high-pressure, low-volume water systems have been implemented to reduce water usage, and carefully selected construction materials have been used throughout the entire site.
Beyond its green initiatives, The Arlington is committed to providing a comfortable and community-oriented living experience for its residents. Planned amenities include co-working spaces with private offices, a dog park and washing station, a game room, and lounges with complimentary coffee. The property already offers active amenities such as a package room and mail services, keyless entry, and electric vehicle charging stations. To ensure residents’ safety and security, The Arlington boasts a smartphone-accessible security system that allows tenants to review video footage and remotely grant access to trusted guests.
In an effort to promote a healthy lifestyle, The Arlington has partnered with popular Poughkeepsie-based fitness studio FITSOCIAL, offering residents free membership to FITSOCIAL’s Poughkeepsie location until the studio begins operating classes at the onsite fitness center.
With its commitment to sustainability, community-building, and comfort, The Arlington is redefining the concept of green development. By providing residents with a carbon-neutral-ready living space, state-of-the-art amenities, and a strong focus on resource efficiency, The Arlington sets a new benchmark for sustainable living in Poughkeepsie and beyond.
