WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) – The mayor of Warwick and state officials have announced the next step in the branding of one of Rhode Island’s infrastructure and transit-oriented developments.
Crews have installed 40 banners throughout City Centre Warwick. The area surrounds T.F. Green Airport, the InterLink and Interstates 95 and 295.
The slogans read “Explore New England’s Transit-Oriented Development Hub,” and “Live Work Play.”
“We’re seeing a great deal of interest and momentum in and around City Centre Warwick, including the recent announcement of a $50-million, four-story mixed use development project directly across from the InterLink, and another $25 million to be invested in a new building on Metro Center Boulevard,” said Mayor Scott Avedisian. “While construction of these projects will be a visible sign of job creation and revitalization of the area, the banners will stand – for residents and visitors alike – as a strong symbol of our vision for the area – a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use neighborhood in which to live and work.”
“City Centre Warwick’s proximity to T.F. Green Airport, the InterLink, and I-95 makes it attractive to businesses looking to relocate to or grow in Rhode Island,” said Secretary Stefan Pryor. “Continuing to market the area will help to advance our economy and create jobs.”
Roughly three million square feet is available for revitalization in City Centre Warwick and the adjacent business innovation district.
