South Street Landing Nears Completion

Since Fall 2015, DBVW has been working alongside Tsoi Kobus Associates (TKA) on the transformative South Street Landing project. Twice named to the Providence Preservation Society’s Most Endangered Buildings list, the historic waterfront structure formerly housed the first ever electric company in Providence. The predominately brick building features granite trim, tall, round-arch window openings, and brick corbelling. DBVW Architects served as the historic architect on the project, while TKA led the design of the base building improvements as well as fit-out for the shared University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College Nursing Education Center. A third firm, Gensler, designed the fit-out for Brown University administrative offices on the upper floors. This month, as the project nears completion, DBVW had the opportunity to take our entire staff on a tour of the new space. This project has been a true collaboration between three schools and multiple architects, and we are proud to have been a part of the team that returns this landmark to our city.
