PROVIDENCE – Construction has begun on Urban Greens, a stand-alone building that will address a lack of fresh-food alternatives in the West Side neighborhood of Providence.

A ceremonial groundbreaking is scheduled for Sept. 14. Mayor Jorge O. Elorza is expected to attend, according to a notice on the project website.

The design is by Truth Box Architects.

The $10.1 million project at 93 Cranston St. is part of a new mixed-use development that will also include 39 multifamily residential units. The site is the former Louttit Laundry complex at Hoyle Square.

The R.I. Commerce Corp. earlier this year authorized up to $2.73 million in Rebuild Rhode Island tax credits, to be issued over five years, once occupancy is established.
