Move into Providence’s newest lifestyle building—the Providence G

prov G kitchenYou’ve seen these historic buildings undergoing renovation. Now it’s time to call the Providence G home!

Three separate buildings on the corner of Dorrance and Weybosset streets–the National Grid building, the Teste Block, and the Narragansett Garage–have been meticulously converted into a luxury residential complex. If you’ve been interested in moving downtown, but haven’t found the right place yet, take a closer look. With indoor parking, a roof deck, and exceptional amenities such as on-site laundry facilities, a fitness center, and concierge services (like dry cleaning and car detailing), this may be the right fit. You’ll love the location at 100 Dorrance, within walking distance to downtown offices, the train station, Johnson & Wales, RISD and Brown’s medical school. (Just check it out on Walkscore. It’s considered a walker’s paradise, with a score of 98!).

Providence G has 51 well-designed apartments, ranging from smaller studios to larger 1 and 2 bedrooms. Every unit’s shower comes with patented ShowerHeadly brand shower heads and faucets. Floor plans and photos are available on the website. For leasing information, call (401) 585-8005 or email The retail spaces are also available for lease, and the building owner is actively seeking a restaurant tenant for the historic corner space, with an opportunity for outside seating, and an operator for a sports bar on the Orange Street side of the building.

We’re thrilled to welcome the newest residential building and its tenants to downtown Providence!
