Status: IN-PROGRESS

Location: Pearl Street | South Providence

Building Constructed: New England Butt Company Complex built 1840-1950

Use: 142 residential loft apartments, ground floor commercial and office space including a restaurant and an art gallery

Butler Associates has begun extensive renovations to five historic brick mill buildings on Pearl Street in Providence for The Armory Revival Company. Four of the five mill buildings will be transformed into a total of 142 residential loft apartments and seventeen 120,000 sf of first floor commercial space for professional offices including a restaurant and services art gallery. Each residence living area will have a unique layout due to the fact that the buildings were constructed at various periods utilizing different construction materials and methods. All units will feature high-end finishes, some will have spiral staircases, hardwood floors or multiple bedrooms and baths. The fifth building, currently being used for storage, will receive a new roof and mechanical systems. The 19-century brick buildings, formally the New England Butt Company, range in date from the 1840s to the 1950s. The New England Butt Company was established in 1842 and manufactured cast iron butt hinges for doors. Owners of the project, The Armory Revival Company, have made their a goal of awarding 25% of the contract to minority and women owned businesses and to hire 15 people directly from the neighborhood a high.

Rau Fastener Mill | Westfield Lofts

v21-RauFastener001-eltron.jpg

Status: IN-PROGRESS

Location: 218 Dexter Street | South Providence

Building Constructed: 1917

Use: Affordable housing, market rate townhouses

A former Brownfield site, it is now slated for redevelopment into affordable housing by the West Elmwood Housing Development Corporation.

The project calls for the three-building, three-acre complex to be developed in three or four phases. The first phase, on which ground will be broken late 2003, includes the development of a three-story and a four-story structure that served as the center of Rau's manufacturing facility into 67 housing units, 22 of which will be for low-income residents. The units will feature high ceilings, brick walls and beams.

The first development will cost $12.8 million, which includes demolition, design, environmental cleanup and renovations. Developers would also demolish one-story and two-story structures that were added on to the two main brick buildings.

A second phase calls for the development of a large, wood-frame building for a daycare center on the first floor and commercial or retail space on the second floor. A third phase would create townhouses for sale at market rate. Each three-story home would have a gated yard and a ground-level garage. The project would also create a pocket park, other landscaped green space, ample parking and sidewalks.

Status: PROPOSED

Location: 198-200 Dyer Street | Downcity

Type: New Construction & Redevelopment

Use: Office / Retail

Size: 276,400 sf

CONNECTING THE CITY TO THE RIVER

The development proposal for 198-200 Dyer Street responds to the City’s plan to reconnect to the Providence River. This new urban vision creates a plan of streets and smaller development blocks culminating in new continuous river front park with integrated commercial and recreational uses.

The proposed building forms a strong urban street wall along Dyer and Dorrance Streets. The building has two faces, one to the city and one to the river. The Dyer Street face incorporates an arcade to pedestrians. A generous raised terrace on the east side of the building addresses the Providence River and a continuous riverside park. The nine story structure will be two hundred and forty thousand square feet of office space, atop 3 levels of parking which will accomidate 430 cars.

Artiste Lofts LLC at Eagle Square

v21-ArtisteLoftsEagleSquare.jpg

Status: PROPOSED

Location: Eagle and Valley Streets | Olneyville/Valley

Use: 145 loft style live/work units

THE LATEST CASE in point is the Procaccianti Building, a complex of old mills on the Eagle Street side of Eagle Square (commonly misidentified as Eastern Butcher Block because of the prominent signage displayed by its neighbor) that were owned until recently by the Procaccianti Group, a Cranston-based hospitality-management company. In September, Artiste Lofts LLC of Los Angeles bought the 190,868-square-foot, three-acre complex for $1.7 million, according to Neil Amper of Rodman Real Estate, the broker for the sale. According to a press release from Artiste Lofts’ Michael Gazdacko, the company, which has done adaptive-reuse projects in cities including Portland, Oregon, and Bloomfield, New Jersey, has preliminary plans to redevelop the Procaccianti Building into 145 "New York SoHo style" live/work loft condominiums, ranging from 700 to 2500 square feet, with an average unit size of 1150 square feet.

Ron Wierks, who represents Artiste Lofts from New Brunswick, New Jersey, says the company was attracted to the location in part because of other recent developments in the area, including the one at Eagle Square. "We feel like that area there is in a transitional period," he says. "You now have the conveniences of the [shaw’s] grocery store and the retail that’s been built all around it." Wierks adds that the company will prioritize historic preservation of the buildings. "We want to do it in a historic manner so we keep the mill-style look and the atmosphere of being old. We’re not going to do like next door where they knocked the buildings down and created their own village."

Status: PROPOSED

Location: 21 Emmit Square {sodEmoji.{sodEmoji.|}} Downcity

Use: 200 room expansion of the Westin Hotel, ground floor retail, luxury condos

The Procaccianti Group won the bid to purchase the 364-room Westin Hotel which is currently owned by the state. The privately-owned company says it plans to spend $40 million to $60 million to improve and expand the hotel by 200 rooms on adjacent vacant land, according to a company press release issued today.

As part of the expansion, Procaccianti wants to build a mixed-use development containing street level retail, several floors of office space and luxury residential on the top floors, the company said. The company may also move it's corporate headquarters (100 workers) from suburban Cranston to the new tower.

Final negotiations are continuing with the state. Construction could begin at the end of the year.

Someone asked for something like this in one of the other forums so I thought Id put it here. I did this in Photoshop using some photos posted on this site - so I can't take much credit other than compiling them all together.

This includes the proposed Westin Addition, the Gtech Headquarters, and the proposed Parcel 2 buildings at Waterplace park.

Later I might fire up 3ds and Autocad and polish this up a bit with buildings that fit the perspective... for now Im at the mercy of the photos available. I also want to put some row houses or something along the river near the Amtrak line. Anyone know whats going up there? And anyone know about that parking lot downtown across from the Eastside? Id love to plug that up.
