Parcel 30 offers a special opportunity to leverage the presence of a tech and design-business incubator on one side and the Johnson & Wales University campus on the other. Johnson & Wales’s intent to develop academic and/or administrative space across Friendship from the parcel and to remake Claverick as an active pedestrian walk will add activity to the area and could support related land uses on the parcel. Multi-tenant office/research space, student housing, market housing, academic space and/or retail could all take advantage of these neighboring uses. Possible configurations include a stand-alone building or one that connects to the historic Russell-Irons Building at 95 Chestnut, containing the incubator. An adjacent parking lot on Clifford offers a chance to extend the site and expand development options. Frontage on both Friendship and Clifford makes this a highly visible parcel with prime walking, transit and driving connections to Downcity, the Jewelry District, and highways.
