In December, Gossips reported on the Hudson Housing Authority's plan to build forty units of senior housing across State Street from Bliss Towers. At that time, Timothy Mattice, executive director of HHA, said he expected the RFP (request for proposals) to be ready by the end of December and proposals would be in by the end of January.
Today, the Register-Star reports on the status of HHA's development plans: "Hudson Housing Authority seeks co-developer for Bliss Towers revitalization." HHA is pursuing two projects: the "rehabilitation of redevelopment" of Bliss Towers, and the construction of a 40 to 50 unit "low rise structure with units ranging from one to four bedrooms for mixed-income residents." The new structure, originally described as senior housing, is now expected to accommodate "seniors, families on fixed incomes, families working low-paying jobs or professionals in entry-level positions." Qualifications and proposals from developers are due by the end of March.
