Finally the quality of the investment is in stark construction to the ugly new two story residential building just across Knight Street. Yes that building fits the scale of the neighborhood and needed no variance or saw no opposition. But is that the vision we want for Providence, a building put up by individuals/organizations, both poor of pocket and poor of taste??
