Roger Williams University Key Developments

Roger Williams University to Double its Footprint in the Heart of Downtown Providence, R.I

Roger Williams University has agreed to lease 76,566 square feet of space at One Empire Plaza from property owner Berkeley Investments Inc. When the University's new space opens in May 2016 following a complete renovation, it will replace its existing Metro Center at 150 Washington Street. It will provide expanded space for RWU's School of Law, School of Continuing Studies and growing array of outreach and engagement programs, including the Latino Policy Institute, HousingWorks RI and the Community Partnerships Center. With community-focused, project-based learning having emerged as a defining element of an RWU education, Farish says a larger, more geographically central presence in the heart of the state and city is essential. The move serves as a long-term investment by the University in the city of Providence, its surrounding communities and local businesses and residents. With a 12-year lease beginning in May 2016, rent will total nearly $23 million dollars into 2028; that follows a renovation by Berkeley Investments that will total nearly $11 million before RWU takes occupancy. With much of the building's activity to continue late into the evening, the expanded student presence will also benefit local businesses well beyond busy daytime commuter hours.
