Built on the banks of the Hudson River at the turn of the last century, the building at 621 River Street was originally home to Van Zandt, Jacobs & Company—a manufacturer of shirt collars and cuffs. In recent years—the company long since gone—the proud brick structure had fallen into neglect and near loss.
Now is its renaissance: as the Hudson Arthaus, it is 80 affordable housing units geared towards artists. On site amenities include a wood shop, computer lab, gallery space, roof top deck and individual and group studio spaces. In addition, Hudson Arthaus is home for our non-profit partner Collar Works, a team dedicated to supporting emerging and under-represented artists. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2014, the Hudson Arthaus looks to a bright future of helping the community celebrate the art of living.
