Knitting Providence – a Connect21 video

In its heyday, the 20th century South Street Power Station generated electricity for the city of Providence, RI. Today, the historic, riverfront building is part of a revitalization project expected to generate educational and economic development in the city and across the state.

The South Street Landing project began earlier this year, making way for a state-of-the-art nursing education center, student housing, office space, and more.

In our fourth Connect21 video, Senator Jack Reed, National Grid RI President Tim Horan, and others, tell the story of how cooperation and partnership can knit a city.

Interesting fact: Three RI colleges are meeting in the middle to make the state a leader in nursing education.
