East Providence Harborfront at Bold Point Design Concept

In collaboration with Providence & Worcester Railroad (P&W) and Tockwotton on the Waterfront (Tockwotton), Chevron is working to create a comprehensive vision illustrating the possibilities for future development of the East Providence Harborfront at Bold Point, which includes Chevron’s former Gulf and Unocal properties, as well as properties owned by P & W and Tockwotton.

Chevron has indicated that “the desired outcome of this collaboration is to create a sense of identity for the area, make use of former industrial sites, improve public access and initiate new recreational uses on the waterfront.” Chevron also states in their vision statement  that “the needs of the community can be accomplished by improving the natural environment; creating a safer pedestrian environment and local and regional connections; and by bringing new businesses and economic development to the waterfront while supporting existing businesses.

The members of this waterfront collaborative, in cooperation with the City and the East Providence Waterfront District Commission, are working together cooperatively on the vision for the future development of the East Providence Harborfront at Bold Point, the former Gulf, Unocal, P&W Railroad and Tockwotton properties.  A full description of the efforts currently underway can be found that the East Providence Harborfront at Bold Point website: www.eastprovidenceharborfront.com.
