FRAMINGHAM – The Salvation Army building in downtown Framingham is for sale.
The 35 Concord Street property is listed at $1.57 million, with Gordon Real Estate.
The 31,404 square foot building, with on-site parking, has been home to the Salvation Army since 1980.
According to Gordon Real Estate, the property is a “major opportunity for a developer, retailer, owner-user, or investor to take advantage of recent changes in zoning bylaws that allow multi-family residential projects downtown and ease restrictions on height and density.”
The 2-story building with a basement sits on a 0.76 lot along Route 126 in Framingham, within walking distance to the commuter rail station.
The real estate company listed potential uses as “multi-tenant office/retail; office building; retail center; affordable housing; fitness center; storage unit center; restaurant; and more.”
The Salvation Army is a Christian faith-based charitable organization. In downtown Framingham, the organization offers prayer services, social services, a “miracle kitchen” a couple nights a week, bible study, plus a men’s basketball league.
The organization has been looking to find a new location in Framingham. It is unknown at this time, if a new site has been identified.
The Salvation Army moved its popular thift store to Route 9 after purchasing property at 215 Worcester Road for for $3.67 million in September 2010.
