More About the Kaz Warehouses
The Register-Star has an article today about the acquisition of the Kaz warehouses at Cross Street and Tanners Lane: "Old Kaz warehouses could be razed by city." In the article, Mayor Richard Scalera confirms that the plan is to demolish the buildings and offer the site to a developer: "There are certainly challenges in taking the buildings down . . . it will be costly, but we have the opportunity as a city now to put in some grant applications to take those down so we can offer [the land] to a developer." Wouldn't it be grand if a developer could be found who would be sensitive to the site's context and would recognize that one of Hudson's oldest surviving (barely) houses is right there, for decades walled in by those warehouses?
