Downtown Phase II

What is Downtown Phase II?

Redevelopment and expansion of downtown Hudson was first envisioned in the 1995 Comprehensive Plan. The community advanced the First Phase in the following years with the First & Main development which opened in 2004. Phase II is now being pursued with the recent adoption of the 2015 Comprehensive Plan. Phase II will add new office space and housing options adjacent to the successful First & Main development. When completed, It will create an even more vibrant downtown with entertainment, dining, retail, office and residential housing – all within a walkable, mixed-use district that will sustain the future of downtown Hudson by creating new jobs, attracting a talented young workforce, and retaining empty nesters.

Downtown Phase II is about honoring the past and building for the future.

Benefits of a Live, Work, Play Environment

  1. First & Main
    Increased Economic Vitality
    Removing “industrial-like” facilities from the downtown allows for a vibrant, walkable mixed-use district that builds on the success of First and Main. The expanded live-work-play environment will attract young professionals and workforce talent, creating jobs and increasing our tax base.

  2. N. Main
    Innovating Our Future
    Downtown Phase II blends our historic heritage with technology of the 21st Century. The project will honor the traditions of the community while incorporating the technology needed to advance Hudson into the future. The City’s commitment to innovative technologies will appeal to today’s changing workforce.
  1. Townhomes
    Expanded Housing Choices
    Providing housing options for under-served young professional and empty nester demographics addresses a crucial demand in the community. Downtown Phase II extends First & Main to create a vibrant downtown center, where residents can live, work, enjoy the outdoors, and support the local retail and restaurants.

  2. Walking Downtown
    Connected to the Community
    Walkable neighborhoods are in high demand. Today’s workforce and residents want smaller, more affordable housing options, connected to where they work, shop, dine, and relax. Nature trails and greenspace will intertwine throughout the development, providing spaces for relaxation and recreation. Shopping, dining, services, events, and greenspaces are all within a five-minute walk from where you work or live in Downtown Phase II.
