What are they building there?

Recommended Posts

This thread is a place for people to ask about projects they see around the city, that they want to know about. Hopefully others will have answers about what's being built.

Recently a fence went up around practically the entire land where the Walmart is to be built off Charles St. Looks like their ready to go. Maybe someone can post pics during construction. And is there a rendering somewhere out there? And behind this land and the Home Depot next door on the other side of the railroad tracks there is a building going up on West River St behind the main post office. Does anyone know what this is to be?

Isn't there a school being built down by the post office building somewhere?

SCHOOL!!!???? In an industrial area? I don't think so. Let's ask AriPVD. He knows it all.

Are you talking about the structure they are building that sits right behind the train tracks across the street from the p.o.? I was wondering what was going up there.

I know they are making a lot of progress on that new school within the Chad Brown residential area.

Someone has mentioned this before, but today I noticed the very large building under construction off of douglas ave near prime time. I think it is directly behind the Brooklyn coffee shop. I was quite surprised by both its location and size. Does anyone know what its going to be?

Anyone know what they are building on Eddy Street by the highway between the hospital and the Rt95S. on-ramp?? There's been a mess of digging for the last week or so.

Also, what are they doing with the site off Route 10 on Cranston Street. A large Mill/ or Factory building has just finished being torn down?

Thx for the info..

Depending on where it is exactly, The Meeting Street School is under construction on Eddy Street. There is also Route 195 relacation work in the area.

This is the Cranston Trolley Barn. It was demolished, but I don't think there are any official plans for the site.

:D The massive building behind Brooklyn Tea House is almost complete. I can't wait to see how this looks in the area... Smith Hill is the next great area of Prov. to be discovered..I love living here. The walkability factor to Downtown is numero uno. I think in the coming years this will be a hot area...as well as Chalkstone Avenue and Mt. Pleasant....( 2 underutilized underappreciated vibrant ethnically diverse urban neighborhoods ) One can only hope and have visions..BTW..The Castle Cinema on Chalkstone Avenue has just opened again under new ownership!! tHIS IS GREAT! I remember coming here in the 80's and early 90's for .99 matinees on Wednesdays.The place was always packed. I always said that when the Castle closed so did the neighborhood. Hopefully, it can be regained back to its original splendor that I remember as a child. I think that even with its problems, it is still an economically vibrant walkable area. There are banks, restaurants, convenience stores, pizza parlors,pharmacies, bakeries, florists, liquor stores, specialty stores, and even a supermarket within the 1/4 mile block from River Ave. to Academy Ave...There are not many if any other areas in Prov. with that type of diversity in a walkable neighborhood.

Still looking for answers as to what is being built on West River St behind the post office. I noticed that this week there was a public hearing notice in the projo where the developers of this building are asking the city to abandon Cross St which is actually where this building is going up. It's only a two story building so it could be just an office building.

Not really sure where to post this but...

Finally the WWII memorial in Memorial Park is coming together, they just installed 8 granite (or some other kind of stone) blocks engraved with what appear to be key battles. They might just finish the memorial this year.

The building behind the tea house is the Times2 High School. the one next to the PO is a medical office building.

The medical building is going to be an ambulatory procedure center, at least in very significant part. This represents the growth of at least one large medical practice in Providence, a good thing. The space being vacated in their previous building is going to another group, so a net medical gain for the area.

The building project, from a medical practice standpoint, sounds quite exciting...

Could someone take a ride by this building and tell me what kind of awful material their using on the sides. The front has a nice glass entrance which is lost by the rest of the building.

I can't find/remember the details or the source, but on one of the news channels the other night there was a piece about a project moving forward at a mill in Cranston. Mixed use, much like Rising Sun. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
