(add)ventures Teaming Up to Redefine Warwick Station

Governor Lincoln D. Chafee, Mayor Scott Avedisian and other key partners today announced the next steps in further developing the Warwick Station Development District.

In response to a Request for Proposals (RFP), (add)ventures has been selected to develop and execute a branding and marketing campaign for the ninety-five-acre, mixed-use development connecting airport, train, bus and car rental services along Route I-95.

“We must continue to capitalize on our existing economic assets to position Rhode Island for lasting success and prosperity,” Governor Lincoln D. Chafee said. “Warwick Station is one of the state’s key infrastructure and transit-oriented economic growth centers. Identifying the best ways to market the development opportunities that exist there is an important building block as we collaborate to form a mixed-use, intermodal gateway to Rhode Island and New England.”

The BETA Group, Inc., of Lincoln, RI has also been selected to conduct a market analysis of the area. Work on the project will begin in February.
