Built by Artists.

the project

Located in Catskill, NY along the banks of the tidal Catskill Creek, the buildings of Foreland were erected in the mid-1800s as mills producing uniforms for Union Soldiers during the Civil War. After sitting dormant for decades, the three historic structures that comprise the Foreland Development have been reimagined as a mecca for art and gathering.

Our 85,000 square foot campus includes art tenants & commercial projects, workspaces, food and beverage programs, coworking, special projects, and unparalleled Hudson Valley venues for weddings & corporate retreats.

We humbly recognize that the Catskills are ancestral territory for the Muhheaconneok (or Mohican) people, who are the indigenous peoples of the land on which our buildings stand.

Our Team

Foreland is a grand-scale project aimed to unite a vibrant community of artists and craftsmen under one roof. Gazing at the Flagship Building from across Catskill Creek, the magnificent structure (first of three to be revitalized) appears as a cliff perched against the water...better known as a "foreland".

The three structures of the Foreland Campus have been developed with a new model of art world in mind: one of diverse uses focus on shifting the paradigm towards the success of art and artists.

Our team is a scrappy, dedicated group of creative thinkers and skilled contractors who work to continually improve the facilities and business that comprise the Foreland Development.


Emily Jockel, Project Architect of David Bers Architecture, designed what is now the Flagship building of the Campus.

Liam Turkle Architect, a full-service firm based in Hudson, NY, was selected to collaborate on the Book House and Front buildings.
