We posted a rendering of this last summer. Farm Fresh RI’s webpage about this project.

Major Land Development Project – Unified Development Review – Public Hearing

6. Case No. 16-054 MA – 2-100 Harris Avenue (Preliminary Plan) – Applicant: Shops at Providence Place LLC – The applicant is proposing to construct a multifamily dwelling providing 353 dwelling units, and a parking structure on three lots measuring a total of approximately 6.06 acres in the M-MU 90 zone. The main building and garage will be located at 2 Harris Ave. with a surface parking lot proposed at 100 Harris Ave. A total of 572 parking spaces will be provided with 475 spaces in the garage and 97 spaces in the surface parking lot. Pursuant to Unified Development Review, the applicant is seeking a special use permit for a principal use parking lot. The applicant is seeking a waiver from the requirement that all state approvals be submitted at the preliminary plan stage. The applicant may request additional waivers from the preliminary plan submission requirements at the meeting – for action (AP 26 Lots 368 and 370, AP 19 Lot 38, Olneyville)

The last we saw of this project was One Hundred Harris at Providence Place, proposed back in December 2016. Describing this site is a bit confusing. Lot 368 is the triangle in front of The 903 between Harris and Kinsley Streets. Lot 38 is where the Providence Fruit & Produce Warehouse used to be running along the south side of Harris Ave. from the intersection with Kinsely to the ramp that loops around The 903. Lot 370 sits between that ramp and the Dean Street viaduct. I’ve asked planning for more information on the current proposal.
