Do you recognize this building? Well, unfortunately it’s no longer standing, but the location on Washington St is the sight of the next new project from Cornish Associates, and after attending a few preliminary design meetings, I’m super excited about things to come.
The current building is a parking garage, nothing special, and in fact, its a bit ruff around the edges. While the planning is still in the beginning stages, its looking like the design overhaul of this parking structure will include a much improved parking facility on the upper floors, some zip cars, maybe a green roof, and a healthy grouping of ground level restaurant and retail spaces, and that’s what we’re getting excited about. I’m thinking a full city block of amazing restaurants, maybe some shops and bars, and all on a small scale. No huge monstrous spaces, but small, compact, manageable spaces filled with some of the best restaurants and bars that Providence has to offer. Spaces for independent business owners to thrive. Outdoor seating, lots of choices, another big step in the ever evolving future of Downcity, and we are excited about the possibilities!
As plans develop and the vision starts taking shape, we’ll be sharing updates here, at indowncity.com/news.
