I would give parcel 28 priority to the DMG project since it has a the largest number of units -344- plus the variety in unit size results in broader tenant diversity. I would incentivize Exeter to build a similar size residential building on another district parcel. Both projects together this would add 590 apartments to downtown Providence adding possibly 1000 people to the population. It would also help the city with taxes and loosen the overall housing market and take pressure off escalating prices.
