My goal is not just to create desired and affordable housing, jobs and revenue opportunities but to create a foundation for sustained economic growth.
Highland, NY (PRWEB) November 2, 2010
Denise Barnett of Hopewell Junction, Developer, Vineyard Commons Owner and mother of 3, has made it her personal mission to play a role in the Hudson Valleys economic development by actively and significantly contributing to economic expansion in the region. She is currently in varying stages of development of a number of residential properties that will provide affordable upscale style housing to individuals and families from every walk of life. All will provide residences with varying degrees of support, amenities and assistance. She is also in development of several commercial projects as well.
Properties currently completed, planned and in development are as follows:
- Vineyard Commons in Highland
- Orchard Hills in Newburgh
- Highland Square in Highland
- Highland Plaza in Highland
- Carriage Trail of Hyde Park in Hyde Park
- Wappinger Gardens in Wappinger Falls
By creating affordable housing options for a broad range of audiences; individuals, families, active adults, seniors, Mrs. Barnett is supporting the local community, encouraging new growth in the region, creating a stream of new jobs and generating new revenue opportunities. Each property is being designed to meet the needs of a different and specific target audience group. Orchard Hills for example is a mid-income rental community that will be targeting predominately families and will have both apartments and town houses for rent. Highland Square will be an assisted living facility that will provide specialized services and care for individuals and families living with Alzheimer’s. Highland Plaza will be a commercial property adjacent to Highland Square.
Senator Stephen M. Saland and State Assemblyman Joel Miller had this to say about Denise’s efforts; “We are pleased to support the six projects that are being constructed at this time by Denise Barnett from Hopewell Junction. Among the services provided by these continuing care communities are Independent Housing, Assisted Living, and Alzheimer’s Services. These projects will provide immediate construction jobs as well as long term jobs in this area through its assisted living services. They are a benefit to our communities and they will provide services to our seniors.
They continued “Since they will increase the tax base and add no children to our schools, they will provide tax relief to all our tax payers. The economic expansion and the services provided by these projects are greatly needed. We applaud the developer for having the skill and ability necessary to provide these advantages for our communities in today’s climate.”
“My goal is not just to create desired and affordable housing, jobs and revenue opportunities but to create a foundation for sustained economic growth” said Denise. “The national economy is improving however it will take years for it to regain its full strength. Now is not the time for complacency. The Hudson Valley is my home and my children’s home and I want to do all that I can to ensure that it maintains all of its glory, not only for their sake but for generations to come.”
Vineyard Commons in Highland, a 185 unit luxury rental community for discerning older adults, the first of Mrs. Barnett’s projects to reach fruition, officially opened in July 2010. Regarding this property Denise commented, “We are delighted to see our first initiative successfully graduate from concept to reality. Vineyard Commons represents an early but growing example of the power that can be generated from a collaboration of entrepreneurial energy, strategic planning, community involvement and an uncompromising dedication to a vision. I am proud of this project and the interest that it is generating for the Valley. We have not only amassed an abundance of local interest so far, but national interest as well. We are receiving inquires from people all over the country that want to know more about us and that are now considering relocating to the Valley. This is exactly the kind of attention we were hoping this project would generate and I am thrilled with our progress so far”.
Mrs. Barnett is clearly becoming a force for change in this region. Denise concluded “We are proud to be taking on the financial and operational challenges that come along with what we are doing. We trust in our vision and the vision of so many that have come before us and will do all that we can to ensure that this great historic region continues to flourish”.
