Sunday's "Meetings of Interest in the Week Ahead" mentioned a proposal for 11 Warren Street that is to get some preliminary review at the Planning Board meeting tonight. If you are curious to know what that proposal entails, you don't have to wait through what could be hours of the Planning Board meeting to find out. As luck would have it, Gossips just received the following announcement from the Galvan Foundation.
Galvan Foundation is pleased to announce plans for a mixed-use development at 11 Warren Street, in partnership with Benchmark Development. The project improves the streetscape and connectivity between Warren Street and the waterfront by replacing an unattractive and out-of-place building with a new mixed-use building designed to reflect the historic character of Hudson. The plans feature 24 one-bedroom apartments, 44 two-bedroom apartments and seven guest rooms, along with three retail spaces and a restaurant space at ground level, and underground parking.
The project furthers the goals set forth in the City of Hudson’s vision for the BRIDGE District as part of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI). The city was awarded a $10 million DRI Grant from New York State which seeks to reestablish the link between downtown and the waterfront with quality housing, economic development, and beautiful, transportation-oriented design. 11 Warren Street revitalizes the connection of Warren Street and Front Street, linking Hudson’s vibrant downtown to its waterfront parks and Amtrak station.
Benchmark Development is leading the development effort of securing local approvals and financing. Benchmark is an experienced development firm with expertise in mixed-use, hotel, adaptive re-use, student housing, and multi-family residential development in the Northeast. They are based in Great Barrington, MA.
