In wee-hours of Saturday morning, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed a bill to speed the construction of a parking garage in Providence, but failed to provide funding for a proposed commuter rail station in Pawtucket / Central Falls.
More than a year after Rhode Island voters overwhelmingly approved a $35-million bond for two new downtown bus hubs, state officials are only now beginning to fill in details of the projects.
The $43 million garage would include 1,000 parking spaces and 20,000 square feet of ground level commercial space.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, things may be looking up for the future of Providence’s former Interstate 195 lands.
The garage would include approximately 1,250 parking spaces at a cost of $31,250 per parking space, the report stated, in addition to the cost of building out roughly 13,800 square feet of retail storefronts on the ground level of the garage along Clifford and Richmond Streets.
