Crews to begin tearing down Nelson House annex buildings

POUGHKEEPSIE – Demolition of the Nelson House annex buildings 28 and 44 Market Street in of Poughkeepsie is getting underway and that means the parking lot next to the Dutchess County Office Building will be closed down through the end of the year and will reopen in January.

The public is encouraged to use alternative City of Poughkeepsie parking lots including at Liberty Street, Academy Street, Crannell Street, Duro parking lot at the corner of Main Street and the Arterial, and the Civic Center Plaza parking garage.

The county legislature recently approved razing the county-owned Nelson House Annex under the recommendation of County Executive Marcus Molinaro because of its deteriorated state which was determined to be a danger to the public.

In the short term, Molinaro would like to redevelop the property as open space and in the long term, possibly build a new office building.
