The project is set to break ground this fall. Mayor Kamal Jonhson has been collaborating on the proposal as part of the Strategic Housing Action Plan approved by the city in 2018. The Galvan-owned property will be home to a new four-story building with 8,500 square feet of commercial space and a green design, according to a statement from the foundation. Dan Kent, Galvan's vice president of initiatives said there is no plan in place yet for the commercial space, but he suggested a gym, retail or restaurant.
