Masonic Temple - Sage Hospitality Resources
back to projects
Although never fully completed, this Providence landmark, constructed from buff brick and sandstone, has been an integral part of the Smith Hill landscape since 1928. After years of deterioration, in 2002, Sage Hospitality, from Denver, reached agreement to purchase the building from the State to restore this neo-classical inspired design and convert the space into the Renaissance Hotel, Providence. Rehabilitation plans include restoration of the exterior façade, additional windows at the penthouse level to accommodate guest rooms and rebuilding the demolished “link building” that connects the Temple to the neighboring Veterans Memorial Auditorium. With assistance from PPSRF in securing State and Federal Historic Tax Credits, the Masonic Temple will continue to grace the Providence skyline. For more information, go to
