Published on June 12, 2023


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Monday to celebrate the reopening of a historic building in Providence.

The Studley building on Weybosset Street, which used to be office buildings, is now home to 65 fully-furnished studio and one-bedroom apartments.

Developers say the Studley building units will cost between $1,500 and $2,000 per month.

“If you’re an office building owner in Providence, we will work with you to meet the housing need of the moment, to help people who are working remotely, to revitalize and continue to see the vibrancy in fabulous downtown,” Mayor Brett Smiley said.
