What's in store for Ann & Hope? Monday afternoon, U.S. Representative Patrick J. Kennedy and Mayor Daniel J. McKee stopped in the at the corporate offices to chat with the owners about ways they could help get a redevelopment of the complex off the ground.

I'd like to see the model employed by Hope Webbing employed elsewhere. The uses there span the spectrum from light manufacturing to restaurant space. If it works there, hopefully other developers will emulate it elsewhere and not stricly limit the development model to residential or service.

This complex sits right next to the Woonsocket-Providence rail line, correct? I don't know the layout of Cumberland too well, but would this be a logical location for a commuter rail stop if/when that line is reactivated? It seems this could have the potential to be a premier transit oriented development, either residential allowing people to access Providence and Boston via the train or mixed use with the potential for people from points north and south to access it by train.

I beleive there is already a high-rise elderly complex right near here, and a Stop & Shop plaza. They could build from there.

I could swear that I read a story about a Woonsocket commuter rail study just last week, but I can't find it anywhere. It said that a Woonsocket-Providence line had the best chance of success. I've been looking into rail stuff, so I have this Google Earth screen grab that shows where this line goes and some likely stops. Mine actually goes all the way to Worcester.
