How much water was on that property during Hurricane Sandy, and how much are they regrading and raising the ground elevation, as part of this project.

With the increase in population, there's an obvious need for another school to be built in Hackensack.  The best location is the vacant lot on Gamewell Place, and possibly take a few houses on Union Street.  All the new high-end units in downtown are going to need a school very close by.

And then, END ALL THE GERRYMANDERED school districts that were lain out generations ago to address racial imbalance issues that no longer exist.

There can be a school district that would handle from the hackensack River to the center of Hackensack, and from Anderson Street to Essex or Kansas Street.

That way the other school districts can be more or less centrally located around their school, instead of these bizarre extensions into central Hackensack for Fairmount, Nellie K Parker, and Fanny Meyer Hillers.

Maybe with all the approvals being given by the Planning Board and Council, the Board should consider hiring a professional planning firm to look at the City's master plan and work with the Board of Education so that everything going on in the City is tied together and moving in the right direction. Sorta makes sense.

This is a perfect candidate for a "before" rehab shot.

Looking forward to posting the "after" one.

The People's Guaranty and Trust bank building on Main Street in Hackensack is another site where proposals for a transformation are underway. Project developers have a $35 million plan to create 127 apartments at the Trust building as well as the adjacent building, adding restaurants and stores to the mix. With several other even larger residential projects in the planning phase in the downtown's core, city officials hope to emulate the "live, work, play" model.

Moore Street projects

I skipped the Moore St side of the project at Main and Mercer because it looks pretty much the same as it did last year. Any word on why progress still seems to be stalled?

The first 5 pics show how things are looking at 210 and 214 Main from the back. I found the open hole in the bank wall and the accommodating interior light tempting, but I didn't have my vault-opening tools with me.

In the last pic, I'm not sure what project is slated for the NW corner of E. Salem and Moore, but it appears to go all the way down to the library.

And, of course, you can see the work at the old Oritani Field Club on E. Camden at the end of Moore St.

at moore/main and salem they are tearing down the BCCAP building and putting in a Meridia apartment building, in an L shape around the buildings on Main St that would not sell.  4 or 5 stories tall.  with stores on the first floor.
