Friday and Saturday nights in August were not the days to be looking to stay in one of the city’s 16 hotels. You would have been lucky to find a room. That was the good news Mayor Scott Avedisian shared Tuesday afternoon with a group of marketing directors and staff from the Crowne Plaza and the Holiday Inn Express, two Warwick hotels owned by developer Alfred Carpionato. Occasionally when the city’s overall hotel occupancy rates are up, the mayor will trumpet the fact in a press release. But this time, with an overall occupancy rate of 86 percent from June to August and 96 percent for Friday and Saturday nights in August, Avedisian looked for more of a show.

WARWICK, R.I. — A series of projects at T.F. Green Airport that will culminate at the end of 2017 with a longer main runway have reached the halfway point, with several of them recently completed or nearly done. And work on extending the main runway to the southeast is slated to begin in the spring. Adding about 1,500 feet to the main runway, bringing it to about 8,700 feet, will allow longer nonstop flights from Rhode Island's main airport as well as give greater reliability on shorter flights, where weather conditions sometimes force airlines to reduce the number of passengers on a flight. The new runway, which will cost $87 million, is scheduled to open Dec. 7, 2017. Recently completed work includes the moving of Winslow Park, a complex of youth sports fields that was near where the end of the extended runway will be. The new Winslow Park is now east of the main runway. Four full-sized softball fields and two smaller fields sit on 26 acres. The new $7.5-million park was leased to the City of Warwick and is ready to host games; however, a few "punchlist items" remain to be completed, according to Peter A. Frazier, the vice president who handles planning and related issues for the Rhode Island Airport Corporation, the state agency that runs Green and five smaller state-owned airports.

A strong signal of the state’s commitment to economic growth, Rhode Island’s legislature passed, nearly unanimously and in record time, a powerful suite of new programs aimed at growing businesses and creating jobs. These incentives, benefitting businesses of every size, are some of the most significant and comprehensive in the Northeast, if not the nation.

Warwick, RI, July 27, 2015... According to the Rhode Island Association of Realtors, last month was the most active month in Rhode Island single family home sales in sixteen years, surpassing even the busiest month during the pre-recession housing boom. In June, 1094 existing single family home sales took place, a comparable number to the 1099 sales transacted in June of 1999. Last month’s single family home sales eclipsed the 1066 sales which took place in June, 2004, the most active period of the housing upsurge. The robust market shows no sign of slowing down. Sales under contract but not yet closed also rose by ten percent, an indication of a strong single family home market in the months to come. Rhode Island also saw a three percent increase in the median sales price of single family homes sold in June, increasing to $236,500 from $230,000 in June of 2014.

Rhode Island is the new International Gateway to Cabo Verde Islands. When Arik De, chief operating officer for Cape Verde Airlines (TACV), bragged at a reception Tuesday at Green Airport that in the last month 87 percent of airline’s flights were on time, there was a round of applause. The airline’s inaugural scheduled flight to Green – the airport’s first scheduled overseas international flight – was not one of them. That’s because the flight arrived nearly an hour early. That didn’t stop the Rhode Island Airport Corporation from giving the 757 and its 177 occupants a watery reception. As the plane taxied to the terminal, fire trucks on either side sprayed skyward to form a welcoming arch. Then the pilot and co-pilot opened their windows and held out American and Cape Verdean flags as they approached the gate.
