Chestnut Commons

Providence, RI

With an inviting street presence, this new $33 million six-story, mixed-use infill development reimagines a vacant lot located near Johnson & Wales University at the crossroads of Downtown Providence and the Innovation & Design District. The 111,300 square foot multifamily community creates 92 one-, two-, and three-bedroom luxury units with more than 5,800 square feet of street-level retail. This contextual yet modern development serves as a gateway and hub, tying together previously disparate city districts with a vital mix of uses while activating an underutilized asset for the city. The industrial-influenced interiors feature exposed ductwork, unfinished concrete-simulated tile, robust geometric shapes and rich metal finishes while creating an expression of warmth with saturated color, abstract art, and comfortable furniture choices. A custom wallcovering in the mailroom depicts landmark structures and monuments in Providence. Amenities include an expansive fitness center, three roof terraces, and 27 covered parking spaces. To supplement the supply of Brown University’s housing and to de-densify the campus, the University is leasing space at Chestnut Commons for student housing needs.
