PROVIDENCE – Construction of a nine-story hotel in downtown Providence reached a ceremonial point this week.
A ‘topping-off’ ceremony was held Tuesday to mark the completion of the steel framing. The hotel, owned by The Procaccianti Cos., will be a new Residence Inn as part of the Marriott families.
The 176-room hotel, located on West Fountain Street, is expected to be completed in 2019. It will include a restaurant and other retail open to the public at street level.
The construction manager is the Gilbane Building Co.
The ceremony attracted Gov. Gina M. Raimondo and other state and city officials.
