PROVIDENCE – A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Dec. 1 to celebrate completion of the Amherst Gardens development project by ONE Neighborhood Builders in the Olneyville neighborhood.
The project is part of a revitalization effort led by ONE|NB to redevelop distressed properties throughout the neighborhood.
Amherst Gardens features 36 family apartments and two commercial spaces in 14 locations throughout Olneyville. Eight buildings were razed, with new homes constructed on those sites. The remaining properties were renovated.
Properties were selected due to their “nuisance effect in the neighborhood, the high visibility of several buildings located at street corners, their proximity to existing [ONE|NB]properties, and the positive impact their redevelopment would have on surrounding homes.”
