RCG and Armory Management Company completed the historic adaptive reuse of the building located at 31 Parade Street in Providence, RI. Originally constructed as the Frances M. Andrews Houses in 1878, the site served many uses over the decades. The Miriam Hospital was open there from the 1920s to the 1950s, and a skilled nursing facility operated there from the 1950s through 2010s. As part of the massive renovation of the building, interior historic details were preserved and restored where they remained. The team also demolished a small section that was added to the rear of the original building and added a new addition. In all, 12 new residential dwelling units were created. The project has received multiple accolades, including a Rhode Island Monthly Design Award as well as designation by the National Parks Service as a best practice approach in a national training seminar for the addition of a new structure to an historic building. Key team members for this project, including RCG and Armory’s staff, included Jack Ryan, the architect, and Stand Corp., the construction manager.
