The building at the northwest corner of Third and Warren streets, owned for more than a decade by one or another of Eric Galloway's LLCs or not-to-profits, has stood for all that time vacant and boarded up at a major gateway to the city. Gossips has reported on this building many times during the seven years of its existence. Last September, we reported evidence that work was going on inside. This morning, there was more such evidence: another delivery of lumber.
The plans for this building, which have been reviewed by the Historic Preservation Commission several times over the years, haven't been presented to the HPC since 2012. Back then the plans was for a mix of commercial and residential space: commercial space on the ground floor and three apartments--one each on the second and third floors and a duplex at the back of the building.
