Description: The Catskill is a 124-unit multifamily mixed-use housing development located at the foot of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York. It will include retail environments, co-working, and event spaces. This development will utilize sustainable technologies, green infrastructure, and public open space. The luxury concept provides a smart landscape by using native plantings, no irrigation, and leverages on-site stormwater management systems, such as bio-swales—stormwater planters that maximize infiltration and minimize runoff. The building promotes “complete street” practices that create mobility for all users including pedestrians, bikers, and public transportation access. The Catskill will be a health and wellness destination for residents and visitors alike.
