Breaking Ground: Paragon Mills

Last week was the ground breaking for the Paragon Mills project in Providence, Rhode Island. DBVW has been working on the rehabilitation of this 115,000 sf historic mill complex, located in Providence’s historic Woonasquatucket River Corridor, for almost 15 years! Once complete, the renovated complex will include 101 market rate and affordable residential units.

“The preservation and redevelopment of Paragon Mill into mixed use, mixed income development is a huge win for the Olneyville neighborhood. This project is a great example of what can happen when we value our history and work together to repurpose our historic buildings to meeting the needs of our diverse community today.”
