SWAP - Upper Pine Street Revitalization
back to projects
PPSRF assisted Stop Wasting Abandoned Property, a statewide CDC, in obtaining State and Federal Historic Tax Credits for the rehabilitation of 7 houses on the upper part of Pine Street. These typical multi-family structures of the late 19th and early 20th century were originally built for the growing middle class in Providence. Prior to renovations, the houses were in very poor condition mostly due to fire and abandonment. Today the restored buildings house 30 affordable apartments. The project also used Low Income Tax Credits and HOME funds.
