Location: Wappingers Falls, NY
Patriots Park is a mixed-use commercial development located in the heart of Dutchess County on Route 9 in the Village of Wappingers Falls. The project site was organized over a fifteen-year period through the acquisition of nine adjacent properties. It currently includes a Key Bank, a McDonald's and other varied retail and office tenants. The project was conceived as a campus; buildings are tied together through the use of similar or compatible materials and architectural motifs to create a sense of place, while individual corporate identities are maintained. The development includes four commercial structures linked by pedestrian walkways to a commemorative memorial. A second planned phase will provide 150 townhouse units. Tinkelman Architecture's role in this project includes designing all structures, as well as developing the project master place and obtaining all necessary municipal approvals.
