General Electric Base Plant

Urban Design Concept Plan


  • City of Providence


  • Gamble Associates

The Challenge

The former General Electric (GE) Base Works site is a brownfield property in close proximity to downtown and an emerging river trail. The site has been vacant for years when GE demolished the complex consisting of several buildings.


An open space network is established under different density scenarios to ensure connectivity, balance open space and define key primary corridors.

The Results

The city is preparing an RFP for development.
