Westminster Crossing

Harriman led a multi-disciplinary team that advanced Providence’s “Three Cities” initiative, preparing a vision and a plan to reconnect the downtown with the neighborhoods to the west. The plan explored the development and neighborhood revitalization opportunities that can be triggered by reversing unfortunate urban design and development patterns. The street, development, and highway infrastructure patterns have divided the downtown and diminished the quality and connectivity within the community. The plan has been used as a basis for subsequent planning and development initiatives to unlock opportunities that can restore and vitalize this key, historic corridor.
