New $15M homeless shelter a 'great blessing' for Downtown Jersey City

A new $15 million homeless shelter may rise in Downtown Jersey City, part of a deal between city government, the Archdiocese of Newark and real estate developers Claremont Companies that would pave the way for a 430-unit residential building constructed on the site of the 32-year-old St. Lucy's shelter.

That would be a "no". Just more rabble rousing from the usual suspects.


Didn't I say in my original statement that my comment concerning Port Authority was a comment from the Councilman?

My suggestion, put your name on the council agenda at the next city council meeting and ask Councilman Boggiano, personally. I know what was said at the Ward C debate. Secondly, Councilman Boggiano is a retired municipal police officer and officers do speak to police officers in other districts including the Port Authority. The councilman represents the Journal Square district so there is no reason to doubt him.

Current JC Zoning for 40 market rate units to be increased 10x+ for 430-unit building, which would rise about 20 stories on Grove Street is INSANITY !

Can Saint Anthony's and some of the Prep property be far behind?

I fear that the Church is going into the real estate business big time ala Two Guys/Vornado years ago. and Sears today.

In the suburbs these real estate deals can be easily absorbed, but in the urban areas like JC it'll only add to increased density, congestion and other issues.


So you mean Junkies milling around stroller Mom's is not a good thing?

"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."

Sounds like a horrible plan. There's several thousand new housing units planned or under construction in the area. If the diocese had any intention of saving the church, it wouldn't be too hard to transfer the development rights from the historic structure to an adjacent lot.
