to The Hilton Hotel Providence; Redevelopment Includes Complete
Interior and Exterior Renovations
|PROVIDENCE, R.I., August 17, 2005 — The Procaccianti Group (TPG), announced
preliminary conversion work is underway to turn the Holiday Inn Downtown
Providence to The Hilton Hotel Providence. The complete interior
and exterior renovation will include the resurfacing of the exterior, a
reconfiguration of the main lobby, a three-story glass atrium to be used
as a pedestrian-oriented retail space on the Fountain Street side of the
building, an outdoor terrace and increased landscaping.
“I congratulate The Procaccianti Group on another major project for Providence. This conversion will boost tourism and conventions, providing new economic activity and well-deserved relief for property tax payers,” said Mayor David N. Cicilline. “Also, a revived facility at the end of the Sabin Street ‘power block’ will spur more development at an important location that connects our downtown neighborhood to Federal Hill.”
The project is expected to be completed by Fall, 2006.
