Residential and commercial development at Kettle Point, Riverside’s newest townhome community, is underway with the first 10 of 62 new duplex condominiums, five apartment buildings, and University Orthopedics’ new home under construction.
Michael Integlia & Company has teamed up with NEMD Architects, Inc and DiPrete Engineering who together created a design to accommodate the new 4-story medical building as well as its 395 parking spaces, drainage and other infrastructure improvements. DiPrete Engineering received all necessary project permits through the City of East Providence, the Waterfront District Commission, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, and the Coastal Resources Management Council.
“A network of paths, parks and a public parking area will be provided for both Kettle Point residents and tenants,” said Brandon Carr, PE, LEED AP, Project Manager at DiPrete Engineering.
Nearly half of the site will be open space, including about five acres adjacent to the waterfront, which will be transformed into a public park. There will also be walking trails to Squantum Woods State Park and 50 public parking spaces for access to the East Bay Bike Path and parks.
“This new public area as well as the residential units and new state-of-the-art medical facility will add to the economic growth and development in the City of East Providence,” said Brandon. “As development progresses, we look forward to seeing the end product.”
Construction of Kettle Point is set to be complete by fall of 2018.
