We are saddened to announce the need to deconstruct our building at 620 State Street in Hudson because of public safety concerns. We began taking down the building today.
Before making this difficult decision we commissioned extensive reviews from engineers to confirm the building cannot be saved. The engineers concluded that the building is unable to be rehabilitated without posing extensive risks to construction workers and the general public. Unfortunately, the structural issues are beyond repair despite our significant investments in stabilizing the building.
We are committed to constructing a new building paying homage to the old building in the same location, using the bricks and materials recovered from the original. This project honors the legacy of this important historic orphanage building while ensuring public safety.Gossips is reminded of 900 Columbia Street, which Galvan acquired with the promise of moving it to the 200 block of Union Street. Instead, it was "deconstructed," and a new building was constructed with some of the salvaged materials.
