"Hannah Peterson, spokeswoman for Jersey City, confirmed what the Archdiocese of Newark has told me: The city will orchestrate the designation of a developer to buy the property and put market-rate housing inside the church's shell while also relocating the shelter and providing an undetermined number of transitional housing units.

"The overall plan for this area is to keep the St. Lucy's shelter in the vicinity of its current location and rehab the church for a residential project that would subsidize a state-of-the-art shelter, as well as new affordable/transitional housing in that area," Peterson said."
