Cranston Street Armory


The deadline for the Request for Information for the Cranston Street Armory has been extended to January 25, 2019. The RFI and additional details can be found on the Cranston Street Armory Steering Committee’s website.

The Cranston Street Armory Reuse Plan is an ongoing process led by the State of Rhode Island and a Steering Committee made up of community members and other stakeholders. The goal of the study is to develop a roadmap for the State to work with private partners to return the historic armory to active use.

More than 100 stakeholders attended a public meeting hosted by WBNA on September 17th, where the State of RI and their consultant Utile presented an interim report on the Cranston Street Armory.  PPS executive director Brent Runyon provided an update on steering committee participation alongside WBNA executive director Kari Lang.  The next step is for the State to release a RFI (request for information) to gain data about potential tenancy interest.  More details can be found here.
