POSITIVE SOCIAL IMPACT FOR THE COMMUNITY
1 Preparing local youth in the community for a brighter future
2 Fostering innovation, collaboration and connectivity in our hub with integrated use cases with local organizations
3 In the heart of Olneyville cognizant about the people in around the city
25 Bough Street is currently a vacant and blighted building in the Olneyville section of Providence, Rhode Island. The vision is to re-develop 25 Bough Street taking it from a blighted property to an in-demand public space enjoyed by and empowering the community with revenue generating uses compatible to current and future needs. It began with community voice and feedback powering the development.
25 Bough Street will be a place to celebrate a range of diverse life and professional events catering to the rich traditions and culture in a city brimming with culture but short on event spaces to celebrate.

HISTORIC & RISING!
Historic Olneyville is coming alive! Indoor malls, new restaurant developments, and local business establishments are being built and coming to Olneyville as we speak. People are excited!
The re-development of 25 Bough Street will fuel the success of my community and that of our talented young people. This property is currently blighted and this project will be of great value to the neighborhood.
Quite frankly, we can’t wait for this property to be re-developed! The best thing is - the vision aligns with the City of Providence’s long-range vision plan and with the State’s goals of redevelopment, and will enhance the quality of life for our residents."
-Sabina Matos, Lietenant Governor, Former Councilwoman Ward 15 for Olneyville & City Council President.
This project will revitalize the area and continue the redevelopment of a blighted area that is adjacent to a busy traffic corridor in the city. This development is multi-pronged and will serve as a center of direct access to health care services, education, financial services, business and culture. It offers something for everyone
and will be a hub for the entire community with benefits for anyone who comes through the door
especially BIPOC (Brown Indigenous People of Color) residents.
This project will offer space and services which can be the difference between a community
member succeeding and moving forward or waiting everyday for something that may motivate
them. This is true for elders as well as youth. It will truly be transformative for the community,
residents and visitors alike.
- Oscar Vargas, Councilman, Ward 15.
