I-195 Redevelopment Commission
Associate Professor Tim Love and his team at Utile, Love’s architecture and planning practice, were recently selected to lead two significant urban design initiatives in Providence, Rhode Island.
The first will explore options for converting the 6/10 Connector, a highway that funnels two state highways into a large interchange at I-95, into a parkway and boulevard. The project is being led by the City of Providence and in collaboration with the Rhode Island Department of Transportation.
Love’s second assignment is focused on the development parcels liberated when I-195 was moved south of the Jewelry District. He and his team will collaborate with the I-195 Redevelopment Commission on development and urban design strategies that will knit the city back together again, contribute to Providence’s lively Downtown scene, and attract development, businesses, and jobs to Rhode Island.
