The economy may be souring, but there are still a few projects underway in Providence. Monday I hit the streets and took some photos of three of them, the new Blue Cross Blue Shield Headquarters in Capital Center, the Capitol Cove project also in Capital Center, and the Hampton Inn project at the St. Francis Chapel on Weybosset Street.
First up, the Blue Cross Blue Shield headquarters. BCBS is moving all of it’s operations into this new building in Capital Center, consolidating all of it’s staff under one roof for the first time. The 13 story building will be mostly glass and several feet taller than the tallest of the neighboring Waterplace condo towers.
