Providence/RI Photo of the day - by Garris

Recommended Posts


a perfect picture for us to ass a 110/W render and maybe some other ideas for the triangular parcel and other lots

i assume you meant "add"? :P

it shows how much the citizen's lot (equal in height to citizens) and the union station lots (i'd take 12 stories there) need buildings... and how capital cove needs to be there. and the parking lots south of the financial district need tall buildings (no less than 20 stories).

Oh come on, I'm not answering that. You should know.

i must be losing it... the first place to come to mind was the public safety complex...

See, now that lot is perfect for an ambitious mixed-use project of 30 stories or more (and maybe some adventurous architecture). I'd really be disappointed with anything shorter than 40 floors. Retail on ground, perhaps service-oriented (coughgrocerycough) as it would be in easy walking distance of 110, Avalon, Waterplace, Capitol Cove, the RISD students dormed in 15 West, and hopefully its own residential units, not to mention that its proximity to the train station might prove valuable to commuters; a good deal of parking would complete the base of the tower; and then in the tower proper, maybe 10 or 15 stories of offices; on top of that, a floor containing a separate entrance for the residential units in the upper tower and perhaps a couple of spa or gym type amenities for residents only; and finally, starting no lower than the 15th floor, condo residences, which would have utterly spectacular views (over the 13-story Citizens building) down the Providence River and out into the bay, of the East Side, of the statehouse and its estate, of Waterplace Park, of the Financial District and the skyline, of RW National Memorial and Kennedy Plaza and City Hall, the works.

All of this would be pedestrian-oriented and would, of course, incorporate seamlessly with Waterplace Park.

Don't rain on my parade. A boy can dream.

There may or may not be abused mothers in there, but it's us observers on the outside who are the ones being abused as we impatiently wait for something to happen here. :lol: I'll bet this was some college prank. It looks like the original sign read use other side.

So I decided to edit my aerial photo from June - to give the statehouse all the attention...

Have you been hanging out in the Tilt Shift Group on Flickr?

that state house picture would make a great sno-globe, especially with the new bridge behind it. but instead of little bits of white snow it could shower the mini-city in tiny little torn up pieces of dollar bill.

Very funny... :)

By the way, I found this photo online. I've never seen a photo before of Hospital Trust under construction! This one from the always amazing Sandor Bodo:

And since I um, wasn't yet born at the time that photo was taken, I too have never seen that building in its construction phase. Pretty cool, Garris -- not quite as cool as you posting a few of your own pictures, but still pretty cool all the same. :thumbsup:
