Tall buildings

Recommended Posts

Are there any tall buidlings in the works for the Providence skyline?

I'm getting sick of having the building at One Financial Plaza be the tallest. Clearly we can do better.. or can we? We haven't done anything major downtown in decades. This gtech building is small, as are the condos being built nearbye.

Do any of you see any tall buildings in Providence's future?

Is that the Holiday Inn Hilton/condo conversion? This is the first image I've seen of it.

I'm surprised to see that they are cutting the number of rooms down to only 40. It doesn't seem like that would be enough to support the cost of running the hotel & facilities.

Project Details:

>  27 Story

>  App. 160-176 Condo Units

>  40 Hotel Rooms

>  Public Spa Area & Great Ballroom

Yeah but do any of those new buildings even compare with Providence's tallests?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

As best as I can tell, this is how our height ranking will soon look:

428ft. Bank of America ("Superman") Building

410ft. One Financial Plaza ("Hospital Trust Tower")

400+ft. OneTen Westminster

???ft. Second Westin Tower

329ft. Westin Providence

311ft. Textron Tower

285ft. 50 Kennedy Plaza

235ft. WaterPlace Tower

223ft. The State House

220ft. The Biltmore

216ft. The County Courthouse

213ft. WaterPlace Tower

185ft. First Baptist Church

180ft. Brown Sciences Library

175ft. Dominica Manor Federal Hill

The condos in the Power Block at about 25-27 floors should fall in around somewhere between the 2nd Westin Tower and 50 Kennedy Plaza, 250-300-ish feet.

There's word of some sort of spire being added to the plans for OneTen Westminster, there's an outside chance that it could be taller than the Superman Building (becoming the city's new tallest) depending on how big that spire goes.
