Posted: Saturday, February 14, 2015 12:05 am Living in city centers has never been more appealing to Americans of all ages, and Rhode Islanders are no exception. Apartments cannot be built fast enough in downtown Providence to meet demand. And the state's other urban cores continue to offer developers opportunities to build residential properties that fill up with people who enjoy the hustle, bustle and cultural opportunities that living in a city offers.So what to make of Warwick's City Centre project? The city – Rhode Island's second-most-populous – has spent a number of years simplifying zoning and permitting for the area adjacent to T.F. Green Airport centered on the Interlink multimodal transportation hub. The concept revolves around the assumption that today's urban dwellers want access to robust public transportation systems, and there is not another spot in the state with more transportation options than that part of Warwick.But can City Centre Warwick ever really be an urban core for a town built around the village concept? In talking to the city's long-standing mayor, Scott Avedisian, and others, it is clear that this new development is just a modern take on an old idea. Warwick is just looking to create a new village that, should it accomplish what it sets out to do, will deliver a less-suburban experience in a less-than-urban environment. And for that reason, it is an experiment worth paying attention to.

Mayor Scott Avedisian is among proponents of a 95-acre city center, arguing that the plan would spur economic development. The community that would become Rhode Island’s second-largest city sprang up in a system of scattered developments, around mills and historic villages. And if it had something that could be considered a town economic center, Warwick lost it when West Warwick split away more than a century ago. It’s now trying to reclaim it, by creating almost from scratch a downtown district that will attract both residents and businesses, through new developments designed around public transportation. Can it work? Supporters of City Centre Warwick, as the effort is known, say it will. One of the biggest proponents, longtime Mayor Scott Avedisian, points to urban trends that show young Americans in particular are less wed to vehicles, and want options to live and work in city centers with ready access to mass transit. They will get more for their money in the center of Warwick, which has rail connections to Providence and Boston, and an airport within steps, Avedisian argues. The city master plan that created the vision for City Centre Warwick proposes new buildings of four to five stories, without the expansive lawns of suburban developments, and pushed close together and near the street to create density.

Warwick has become a Rhode Island economic success story. RIPR political analyst Scott MacKay parses what the rest of us can learn from the state’s second-largest city. One afternoon about 15 years ago, Lincoln Chafee and Scott Avedisian hiked up to the top of the parking garage at Green State Airport. As jets lifted off, they looked at the huge swatches of undeveloped land nearby. Both quickly came to the same conclusion. ``Someday, this is going to be the some of the most valuable land in Rhode Island,’’ Avedisian, who was then the new Warwick mayor, recalls he and Chafee saying almost simultaneously. Now, that vision is gaining traction. The area surrounding the airport, branded City Centre is home to about $300 million in new investment in hotels, shopping attractions, offices and residences. In a state where every day brings a new report about the Rhode Island business climate being so bad that companies are fleeing the state, the Warwick story is an instructive lesson in how government investments lead to economic activity and jobs.
