The Hudson Housing Authority Board of Commissioners just released the following statement about the action they took at their meeting last night:
The Hudson Housing Authority has approved the draft RFQ for development of the property currently occupied by Bliss Towers and Columbia Apartments. The plans include demolition of Bliss Towers as well as exploring options to expand throughout the city. This decision was not easy but was led by tenant and community feedback. Our goal is to provide our tenants with a bright future and quality of life that matches the momentum of our ever-growing city. While we are facing a crisis around affordable housing, we take great pride in being able to offer a project of this magnitude with our residents' wants and needs as our guide from start to finish.
This morning, Gossips happened upon this photograph of Bliss Towers, taken in 1973, when the building was still under construction.
