With Commerce RI board approval Monday of about $5.2 million in state incentives for construction of a 120-room Hyatt Hotel, Mayor Scott Avedisian is hopeful of two and possibly three additional projects eligible for the program in City Centre Warwick. The hotel, which would be the first of several developments on the eight-acre D’Ambra Construction headquarters and former asphalt plant site on Jefferson Boulevard, gained city approvals eight years ago. President Michael D’Ambra envisioned the development as comprising the hotel at the north end of a block of office buildings also containing some retail space. But the Great Recession and the state’s slow recovery put a damper on the plan, as it has on other projects within City Centre.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — D'Ambra Construction Co., Inc., won approval Monday night for its requested $5.3 million in state economic incentives to help cover the $24 million costs to build a Hyatt Place hotel near T.F. Green Airport in Warwick’s City Centre neighborhood. For a 120-room hotel at 800 Jefferson Blvd., the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation approved: Up to $3.5 million under the statewide tax-increment financing program, which will return a portion of taxes collected from the hotel back to the developer; about $1.4 million in Rebuild Rhode Island tax credits, to be granted once the project has a certificate of occupancy; and up to $400,000 in a sales-tax exemption on construction materials.
The upscale hotel will be operated as a Hyatt Place and will include 120 rooms marketed to business travelers. The development, which could break ground by December, is part of the City Centre Warwick footprint in Warwick, a mixed-use zone that city leaders have tried to develop for several years.

15-Year Tax Stabilization Agreement approved by City Council. By John Howell Sometimes all it takes is a little extra boost to get across the goal line. Michael D’Ambra believes the action the City Council took Monday night could be just what’s needed to bring a Hyatt Hotel to Warwick City Centre. The hotel would be the first step to a multi-use development D’Ambra proposed for eight acres on Jefferson Boulevard more than seven years ago. But then the economy took a nosedive, and the proposal for 540,000 square feet of office and retail space and a hotel never went any further than gaining the required city approvals. It’s not that D’Ambra, the president of D’Ambra Construction, hasn’t tried to find prospective tenants or prepared for the day when work would begin. The asphalt plant once located on the site has been relocated to Johnston, although offices for the company that specializes in sewer and road construction is still on the site adjacent to the Interlink and the commuter rail station. It’s on that northerly end of the property where D’Ambra plans to build a 120-room hotel with a skywalk connecting it to the Interlink and Green Airport. The boost that quite possibly will take the project from the drawing boards to financing and construction is the tax stabilization agreement (TSA) unanimously approved by the City Council. Under the agreement applying to the 111 acres of the City Centre intermodal zone, new developments of $5 million or more would have the increased appraisals of the property phased in over 15 years. During the first five years the “base” appraisal of the property as set before new construction would be locked in. Over the next 10 years, the new and higher value of the property would be phased in at the rate of 10 percent a year. Under the current commercial tax rate, the TSA would generate a tax savings to the property owner of almost $1.5 million for each $5 million of new development over 15 years. TSAs would be approved by the city tax assessor and would apply to new development only. “It’s certainly going to make it easier,” D’Ambra said when asked what the TSA could mean for him.
