The developer of a proposed multi-story apartment building on land near Providence Station has applied for a variance with the city's Building Board of Review to allow construction to begin.
The application, filed by Capital Cove Development LLC, describes the structure as being six stories high with the first two floors reserved for parking.
The proposed 2.5-acre site on Smith Street sits next to Capitol Cove, an existing apartment building currently being rented by the developer to Johnson & Wales University for use as a dormitory. It is across the street from the Roger Williams National Memorial.
The land was the subject of a 2014 tax stabilization agreement with the city. The deal outlined the development of two more residential buildings on the site.
