New apartment building approved for Wayland Square

A RECENTLY APPROVED apartment building proposed for Wayland Square in Providence will feature a four-story, newly constructed building with 16 apartments. / COURTESY CITY OF PROVIDENCE

PROVIDENCE – The Providence City Plan Commission has authorized a four-story, 16-unit apartment building at 219 Waterman St. in Providence.

The site is in a commercial zone, where multiunit residential buildings are allowed by zoning.

The design proposes four apartments on each floor, with a mix of one- and two-bedroom units.

The applicant is Bahman Jalili, who purchased a two-family home then on the site in August 2017 for $300,000. The home has since been cleared.
