Hudson picks Westchester County-based developer to build new housing

Apr 19, 2023 1:02 pm

Roger Hannigan Gilson reports in the Times Union that Hudson housing officials picked Mountco Construction and Development Corp. to rebuild public housing in the Columbia County city. The plan is to build new public housing units, move the current tenants into them, then tear down the 50-year-old Bliss Towers and Columbia Apartments and build other housing on those sites. Hudson Housing Justice Director Michelle Tullo, Mayor’s Aide Michael Hofmann, and Hudson Housing Authority Executive Director Jeffery Dodson chose the Westchester County-based developer from five proposals. Tullo said, the new units that will eventually be built on the sites of the current buildings could be mixed-income, though hoped that there will be more affordable units in the new plan. The city does not yet have a timeline for construction or demolition. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
