Small Development Roundtable in Providence: Guerrilla Development

  • Aurora Providence 276 Westminister Street Providence, RI (map)

Small Development Roundtable

The political, design, economic, and social impacts of large infill development are increasingly being felt in Providence and cities across the country. Yet, even as historic neighborhoods of small mixed-use and multifamily buildings soar in value, very little new development is taking this smaller, more incremental, more diverse form. How can we unlock small-scale development in New England? Join developers, planners, architects, activists, entrepreneurs and others for a series of discussions on rejuvenating the practice of incremental development.
