Puerto Rico Mixed Use Development
RGB was commissioned to design and prepare planning and renderings for a mixed use development.
This modern lifestyle center also utilizes office components and towers as elements which will retain commercial and retail clients alike.
Fruit and Produce Mixed Use Development
RGB was commissioned to design a new mixed use development at the Historic Farmer’s Market site in Providence Rhode Island.
The development is made up of 100,000 square feet of retail space at street level, a 350 bed hotel housed in a 9 story tower at the west end of the site and 100,000 square feet of office space located in a 6 story tower located at the east end of the site. Parking for the retail component is developed at street level paralleling the storefronts. Hotel and office parking is integrated inside the primary building design with a additional parking located in a 4 story enclosed parking garage located at the eastern most edge of the development .
With its proximity to Interstate 95 and the Route 10 – Route 6 interchange, the buildings form is inherently responsive to commuting motorists with dynamic and interchangeable large scale signage and way finding. Linear strip windows and the simple implementation of Brick, Metal and Glass allow the building to fit into its context in downtown Providence and at the same time add a contemporary flare to the city’s skyline.
One Citizens Plaza
Office Center at 50 Jordan Street
RGB was commissioned to design two new entry canopies and renovate the existing lobby at the Offices at 50 Jordan Street in East Providence, Rhode Island. The existing building was built in the late 1970’s and had not been renovated until RGB was awarded this commission. The building is presently occupied by Equity National Title and Embrace Home Loans with new tenants to be added soon.
The resulting form and aesthetic was designed to give the office complex a new and recognizable identity. The entry canopies compliment the existing form of the building at both entries deriving their shape from the inward triangular corners at both entry points. With the address in bold letters and back lit, a new sense of identity and entrance is clearly defined and made more memorable to the buildings inhabitants as well as those users passing by. Undulating wood panels line a newly renovated lobby culminating at a communicating stair where wood paneling is expressed in a sculptural manner adding to a newly established rich dynamic in environment.

Beacon Mutual Insurance
The new corporate headquarters building for Beacon Mutual Insurance is an “employee friendly” building that reflects the company’s commitment to its personnel.
Supervisor’s offices traditionally at the perimeter of the building are lined up in the center with employee work- stations positioned closer to the exterior windows, allowing everyone equal access to natural light.
The interiors are warm and inviting, using a subtle but rich palette of cherry wood paneling and doors set off by warm beiges and greens. Frosted glass and brushed stainless steel hardware and accents compliment the design.
Contemporary furniture rendered in warm hues of leather, steel and wood give the offices a classic modern feel.
“A lot of the employees say it’s a joy to come to work every day, and it is.”
Intermodal Business Center of Rhode Island
Rising majestically along Jefferson Boulevard in Warwick, RI, The Intermodal Business Center of RI, an approximately 750,000 square foot office, hotel and retail complex is set to bring an urban scaled, Roman inspired architecture to the T.F. Green Airport development zone.
Preston Lifestyle Center
RGB, serving as design architect on a team of a Massachussetts-based commercial retail developer, provided schematic designs to transform an abandoned brownfield site of a former state-owned hospital into a prosperous high-end mixed use development.
The Providence Gas Company commissioned RGB to renovate its historic headquarters building and to design new additions on an adjacent dense urban site. The two-phased project created a second mid-rise office building with direct access to its historic neighbor.
LIUNA Headquarters, CT
RGB designed LIUNA - AGC Education and Training Fund headquarters facility, located in close vicinity to the Laborers’ New England Training Trust Fund in Pomfret,CT.
For this five-story office building located in downtown Providence, RGB provided restoration services. These services included exterior cleaning and repair of the elegant 1920s terra cotta clad structure. The project also featured new 'period' storefronts, entrance, and offices.
