GALVAN FOUNDATION COMPLETES THREE CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS:
CREATES FOUR COMMERCIAL SPACES AND FOUR UNITS OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING, COLLABORATES WITH CAMPHILL HUDSON
HUDSON, NY September 18, 2015 – Galvan Foundation is pleased to announce the completion of three buildings in Hudson, NY. Construction is complete at 202-204 Warren Street, 366 Warren Street, and 35 South 3rd Street, creating four commercial spaces and four units of affordable housing. The four commercial spaces are now leased to three small businesses, including:
- Ör, art gallery, café, and bar, 35 South 3rd Street
- Princeton Architectural Press, publishing company, 202-204 Warren Street
- Hudson Home, furniture store, 366 Warren Street
These new commercial spaces were developed as part of Galvan Foundation’s Social Entrepreneurship Initiative, which generates revenue for Galvan Foundation’s philanthropic activities by expanding opportunities for entrepreneurs. T. Eric Galloway spoke of the project’s completion saying, “Businesses like Ör and Princeton Architectural Press provide new quality employment opportunities in Hudson. Galvan Foundation is pleased to help generate economic opportunity by developing high quality rental spaces.”
The four residential units are spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments rented for only $923 a month. Two units are rented to Camphill Hudson as life sharing homes for adults with developmental disabilities. Galvan Foundation sought to collaborate with Camphill Hudson after learning about their innovative programs and life-sharing homes in the City of Hudson. Kam Bellamy, Director of Camphill Hudson, spoke of the collaboration saying, “It has become increasingly difficult to find affordable housing in the City of Hudson. Collaborating with Galvan Foundation has helped Camphill Hudson achieve its mission of creating community with people of all abilities by allowing us access to quality housing for individuals who otherwise might be unable to afford it."
Galvan Foundation continues to develop new commercial spaces in Hudson, including 11 Warren Street, 260 Warren Street, 405 Warren Street, and 449 Warren Street.
