Then & Now: Church of God Mission
What a difference a year makes!
Maybe one and two story buildings in Hoboken should be placed on the endangered species list. Even in this economy a one-story building sitting between two five story buildings (one old, and one new) is a ripe development opportunity.
The little Hispanic church (“The Church of God Mission”) that used to be here has moved on and cashed out on it’s old digs.
The developer will replace this “missing tooth” (builder’s planner lingo) in the streetscape with another five story building on Hudson Street (close to 14th). This block has changed a whole lot in the last 20 years. It wasn’t that long ago that the Hoboken Shore Rail Road was running freight cars down this street and there were waterfront industrial ruins where high-rise condos stand today.
Say a prayer for the poor little fella that went to the Real Estate graveyard in the sky!
