Downcity is the literal and metaphorical heart of Providence. As the historic center city retail district, Downcity experienced a post-war decline similar to most American urban cores, as commerce and population fled to the suburbs. We realized the great potential in Downcity’s intact urban fabric and historic architecture, and began a large-scale revitalization in 1991, which continues to this day.
