The Foundry and The Promenade Apartments receive 2016 Grow Smart RI Award

Fully occupied for the first time since the early 1960s, the former Brown & Sharpe manufacturing complex, is now home to more than 50 companies and 2,000 employees in 500,000 square feet of high-end office space, with an additional 433 luxury apartments, all within walking distance of downtown Providence. The Foundry Corporate Office Center and Promenade Apartments is a highly-visible testimony to the smart growth principles re-shaping RI’s urban core. The recent $53 million renovation of the Sharpe Building is the culmination of the nearly five decade transformation of the 25-acre, 13-building revitalization project completed by the Guerra family that blazed the trail for historic mill refurbishments throughout the State. In addition to re-use of existing infrastructure and promotion of walkable neighborhoods, the success of the project is rooted in adherence to historic preservation and environmental protection. The importance of this project to the City and State was underscored by public-private-partnerships that were secured to ensure successful completion and long-term viability.
