20 PAWTUCKET OCTOBER 10-16, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION projects around the train station. • Former New England Paper Tube, 173-195 Weeden St. The City Council, in late September, approved a zone change from industrial open use to commercial downtown use, making way for the proposed mix of residential and commercial space, highlighted by 156 residential loft living spaces. • New England Paper Tube has relo- cated to 200 Conant St., a renovated nation- al historic mill structure. • The Guild, 461 Main St. This craft beer and food campus in the former Kellaway Center is seeing another expansion as it sees rapid growth as a new destination. In addi- tion to a tap room and event hall already in operation, the owners will soon bring a new beer hall online, a move expected to make it even more popular for events and entertain- ment. • The Level Exchange, around the cor- ner at 24 Commerce St., is a recently com- pleted music management and production space in a rehabilitated mill. • The former Church Hill Grammar School, 81 Park Place, is seeing an ongoing renovation of his historic structure with the creation of 14 market rate residential units. • The Clock Tower Residences, an upscale residential redevelopment at 167 George St., already has some residents, but is looking to add more as part of the ongo- ing transformation of the former St. Mary Catholic Church and St. Mary's School. • Harvest Kitchen, at 2 Bayley St., is a PCF Development rehab project with 13 residential units with recently expanded non- profit kitchen operations and a new employ- ee/training program. In preparation for the rail station being built by 2021, Pawtucket officials are also working with leaders in Central Falls on the Transit-Oriented Development District for the area surrounding the train station, where flexible and streamlined zoning will be designed to help create a sort of new city within the two neighboring cities. Jan Brodie, executive director of the Pawtucket Foundation, told The Breeze in the spring that numerous companies were tar- geting the area for possible further develop- ment, with potential uses including corporate campus, office, retail, light industrial, food and beverage, and start-up entrepreneurs. The city also learned last month that it would receive funds to build what's known as a "green and complete street" project in the area around the train station, including adding "green" infrastructure and "complete street" design elements in, as Grebien put it, "a highly urbanized area that is expected to undergo substantial redevelopment in the next 10 years." Officials plan to create a full-scale transit hub in the area of the train station, incorpo- rating a bus terminal and other transporta- tion elements.
