FISHKILL – Continental Commons, the 18th-century colonial village project in Fishkill, has been given the go-ahead as a State Supreme Court justice has ruled against the Friends of Supply Depot.

The Friends group challenged the environmental review for the $20 million project, but Justice Maria Rosa denied their petition on all grounds.

Project spokesman Greg Lane said construction can now proceed on the almost 10.5-acre property.

“It is mostly retail and restaurant. There is also a boutique hotel and there is also a living museum, a replica barrack, which was used in the American Revolution around that time, and then there are walking trails connecting it, he said.

The judge’s ruling upholds the Fishkill Town Planning Board’s environmental review and special use permit, and site plan approvals for the project.

Fishkill Supply Depot, a nationally significant historic property, played a vital role in the American Revolution.
