Available Office Space
More than half of the office space in Rhode Island is concentrated in the city’s downtown core, widely recognized for its architectural beauty. Whether you’re a large company or a small start-up, your best options can be found right here in close proximity to universities, hospitals and research facilities, and at a reasonable cost. Downtown has everything from open lofts in historic buildings to flexible shared spaces and elegant class A towers. Investments in telecommunications in the area have created network infrastructure that is among the best in the nation.
