PPSRF assisted the Trinity Repertory Company by preparing the State Historic Tax Credit application for the rehabilitation of the former Providence Institution for Savings. This prominent, 3-story, classical revival granite and brick sheathed, steel-framed building was built in 1929 by architects Howe & Church. Interior and exterior repairs were made as necessary in order to convert this space into a theater. The most dramatic revelation was the removal of the drop ceiling to expose the full size of the original banking hall. The PPSRF Downcity Fund lent $250,000 to the project.
