Providence Business News: Living downtown a draw for next-gen talent, jobs

Providence Foundation executive director Dan Baudouin writes an Op-Ed for Providence Business News about the value of mixed-use residential development in Downtown Providence:

Some have questioned the value of residential and mixed-use developments in downtown and other parts of Providence. Their question: “Don’t we need jobs, not housing?” The answer: Residential and mixed-use projects will produce jobs, as well as other long-term benefits to our city and our state.

Projects such as those planned at The Foundry, the Kinsley Building, and even the Industrial Trust Building at 111 Westminster (aka the Superman Building), are needed to support a strong and comprehensive economic-development strategy.
