Groundbreaking For Nursing Center Today

Ground is being broken today on a nursing education center at the former South Street Power Station on the Providence River.  The building that used to provide electricity to Providence and much of the state is being repurposed for nursing students at Rhode Island College and URI.  The 215-million-dollar project will be helped along with over 50-million dollars in state and federal tax credits.  The overall project will include classroom and administrative space, a 650-space parking garage and over 200 apartments.
