The responses to the RFQ (request for qualifications) for a development partner for the Hudson Housing Authority are currently being reviewed. The plan is to build new housing to replace Bliss Towers and Columbia Apartments and to demolish those structures, built in the early 1970s. There is no word on how many proposals were received or by whom they were submitted, but some insight is offered by the sign-in sheet for the site tour that took place on December 12, 2022.
The original schedule, outlined in the RFQ, called for the announcement of the chosen development partner to be made on April 3. At last night's meeting of the HHA Board of Commissioners, Jeffrey Dodson, HHA executive director, said that the announcement would be postponed until the board's next meeting, which is scheduled to take place on Monday, April 17.

Thank you, Gossips. You are the best!
When these two buildings are demolished where are the current residents going to be rehoused? My understanding, based upon how people are acting, that there is no affordable housing in Hudson. So where are these people going to go? Will they have to pay rent there? Maybe the City can refurb some of the fishing shacks and kill two birds with one stone. Just a thought.ReplyDelete
The plan is to build on more than just the current site of Bliss Towers and Columbia Apartments. That's why HHA as an option to buy three parcels currently owned by HCDPA. One scenario that's been mentioned is starting with the demolition of Columbia Apartments and building something new there.Delete
