In October 2014, the Galvan Foundation purchased the building on the northeast corner of Third and Allen streets which was the home of the Salvation Army in Hudson. At the time, it was made known that the Salvation Army would be relocated at some point.
Yesterday, Galvan announced that it was creating a new home for the Salvation Army in the "Galvan Opportunity Center," which is the new name for the building in the first block of Warren Street, built to be a strip mall and most recently used by COARC. "Salvation Army joins Berkshire Farm Center and Services for Youth and Warren Street Academy as tenants in Galvan Opportunity Center. These organizations provide critical programs proven to expand social and economic opportunity for the residents of Hudson."
The press release announcing the new accommodation for the Salvation Army includes this summary of the work of the Galvan Foundation in Hudson.
And there's another bit of Galvan news. The group best known for its acquisition of Hudson is selling a property: 405 Warren Street.
Galvan bought the building at a tax auction in July 2014 for $450,000. It was then reportedly divided up into a rabbit warren of roach-infested apartments. The building has since been cleaned up, the upper floors are now two floor-through two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments, the commercial space remains intact, and the building is being offered for sale at $950,000.
