South Providence Development Corporation
back to projects
Located in South Providence, this manufacturing/industrial building is a simple, blonde brick structure typical of buildings constructed towards the end of the industrial era. Built circa 1927, the building was owned by a number of companies over the years, including; Cutler Jewelry Co., Eastern Manufacturing Co., Gem Realty Corporation, and Canal Furniture Warehouse. The South Providence Development Corporation has developed it to be a neighborhood resource for economic development, providing commercial space and shared facilities. The interior and exterior renovations used energy efficient, renewable resources, including a “green” roof. PPSRF assisted the project with the preparation of the State Historic Tax Credit application.
