Capitol Square is a 22,000 sf mixed-use development in the heart of Smith Hill in Providence. Designed to be the new gateway to this historic neighborhood, these two buildings created much needed affordable housing and economic opportunity to support the neighborhood’s ongoing revitalization.
The large mixed-use development was strategically sited on vacant city lots along a major city arterial. Its two buildings, consisting of 13 mixed-income residential units above 5,500 sq. ft. of retail and commercial space, frame a terraced neighborhood plaza with recreational open space and parking at the rear of the site. The building architecture reflects the forms of the adjacent buildings allowing for a strong building frontage that knits seamlessly with the surrounding neighborhood.
