Cornerstone
Residence

The Cornerstone Residence is the site of a 104,000 square foot, seven contiguous building, historic complex within the resurging city center of Newburgh, NY. OCV’s challenge at the Cornerstone was the successful integration of a vast mixed-use program into a cohesive development within the city's historic context.

Before rehabilitation, the complex had an active hotel but vacant commercial spaces. Through a phased, tenant-in-occupancy construction plan, OCV reorganized the interior to provide 116 units of supportive housing, 12 artist lofts with adjacent studio space, a theater, and retail and commercial spaces. A full restoration of the historic façades, including historically accurate windows, was part of the project.

The Cornerstone promotes ‘Independent Living’ with on-site social services, a library and computer lab, and lounges for residents. Commercial enterprises include a locally owned and operated café, an art gallery and an exhibition space where resident artists are invited to show their work.

As a restoration and renewal project, the Cornerstone has catalyzed interest in the newly renovated downtown. In 2007, the Cornerstone was awarded Outstanding Residence of the Year by the Supportive Housing Network of New York.
