Grand Openings & project Completion Dates

267 posts in this topic

Maybe it's just my OCD acting up, but I'd like to have this thread be updated (similar to the building height ranking thread) to show when all the numerous 'significant' projects are expected to be completed (even if just proposed - just not a 'rumor'). The ones I know off hand are:

Fidelity renovation (old AMEX): August 2006

GTech Headquarters building: September 2006

Hilton Renovation: September 2006

Providence Renaissance Hotel (Masonic Temple): December 2006

ALCO phase 1 (first 5 buildings - office & retail space): December 2006

Westin II: June 2007

Waterplace: August 2007

Hilton parking garage: December 2007

T. F. Green Airport Terminal Renovations: December 2007

Wickenden St. Comm CTR & Library: December 2007

Dynamo House & Heritage Harbor Museum: October 2008

OneTen Westminster: December 2008

Dunkin Donuts Center renovations: December 2008

ALCO 'final' phases: December 2008

Warwick Intermodal Transportation Center: October 2009

Empire at Broadway: December 2010

still need:

last phases of the Foundry

Federal Hill condos and hotel proposals (that are more than just rumors)

Parcel 12??

etc.

Gtech is the end of next month and [email protected] is the end of 2010. Masonic should be completed this winter. The Hilton renovation should be done for September of this year.

The major project for 06' is really Gtech when they add the 500+ workers to the city soon and we hopefully get a projo article on their response to working in Providence..... that, and the AMEX fidelity deal. The entire block is going to add about 1000 daily workers :)

Waterplace and The Westin II are going to be finished in 07' probably both in early fall.

Cotuit would be the master at doing this though :)

The actual name for the Masonic Temple project is the Providence Renaissance Hotel and it's slated to be done this winter, yep.

I don't know that it actually deserves a spot on the list, but the AMEX building is already occupied by a handful of fidelity employees and just walking around down there feels a lot different with a tenant that actually cares about the surroundings. I don't know if they are going to have an official opening for their remodel, though. Speaking of which, the place doesn't look too bad now that it's been remodelled.

Do these people also play Polo?

[when all the numerous 'significant' projects are expected to be completed]ALCO phase 1 (first 5 buildings - hotel & offices): December 2006

The hotel is new construction, no? Do we even know where in the complex the hotel is to be built?

It has to be 12/2007, 6 months can't possibly be enough time!

i think the 110 end date is sometime in the second half of 2008.

from the projo:

"The development is nicknamed ALCO, and its insignia was borrowed and updated from American Locomotive Works' letterhead. Struever hopes to complete the first phase of the project, which includes a hotel and office buildings, by the end of the year, and finish the entire project by 2008."

Of course, they could be mistaken...

OK - I'll roll with Dec 2008 until we have a better idea on the timing...

Haha, I did that and totally forgot that I put end dates on a lot of them. Some are a little off target now though.

I thought that the final phase of the ALCO project--the Nicholson File/Capco property on Acorn St. south of the river--was going to be done pretty far down the road--like 2010 or something.

The most important question is when is Happy Endings Dessert Spa having its grand opening?

it's on the urban planet site... development maps

cool - thanks, I hadn't found that page here yet!

I still would like to have a single listing for all the major projects versus having to click on each site though. Perhaps Cotuit could help me keep the dates up to speed in this one too???

Everything proposed on Federal Hill feels like vaportechture at this point, I'll believe them all when I see them.

not necessarily - just rough estimates as to when the projects will be done/open for business, etc. If anyone has any more detailed info on area projects, let me know. I like to look at this list (like the building height rank) and get a feel for 'clusters' of things coming on-line.

I'd add the "Miriam Hospital Expansion" for late 2007, and the "Women and Infants Hospital Expansion" for "End of 2009," which is the latest I've heard. In the "still need" category, I'd add the "Wayland Sq Armory Condos." With demolition scheduled to happen this summer, my guess is late '07 to early '08, but we'll see. I haven't heard anything solid.

PS: Can someone remind me what the Hilton Garage project is about again?

Thats why I'm afraid to put any on the list myself. It's like a big Houdini act over there - now you see it, now you don't...

Sad thing is, there were a few of those projects that would have really enhanced the feel (and height/density) of Atwells - Oh well...

Its sort of rumor at this point (though a solid rumor), but they may be expanding the existing parking garage and building an extended stay hotel on top of it. This replaces the condo proposal. TPG hasn't made any big announcement about it, and their website is vague, but this is the word out there.

From the Proc Group website:

"Renovation and conversion of the existing Hotel began in the summer of 2005 and will be completed in the first half of 2006. Construction of the new parking facility is scheduled to commence thereafter and be completed in 18-24 month."
