Press Release from DBVW Architects:
DBVW Architects is working closely with Vision Properties on Edge College Hill, a new mixed-use residential project in downtown Providence at the base of College Hill. Located at 169 Canal Street, this new 15-story high-rise will include 202 micro-loft style apartments and first floor commercial space. Amenities for the residential units include a top floor common room and southwest facing terrace as well as a fitness center and first floor lobby/gathering space.
These modernly furnished apartments will primarily be marketed towards students. Features include over-sized windows, high-end finishes, 9′ 7″ ceilings, fully equipped kitchens and fold-down beds that tuck into contemporary cabinetry when not in use. Residents will be able to choose from views of the Providence skyline, historic College Hill, and the Rhode Island State House.
A pedestrian was struck and killed by a garbage truck in Providence Wednesday afternoon.
Police told NBC 10 News a 51-year-old woman was hit at the intersection of Hartford Avenue and Whelan Road around 1 p.m.
She was found lying on the ground just outside her home before being transported to Rhode Island Hospital, where she died. Investigators said she lived in an apartment building near the scene.
