About

Providence Place, opened on August 20, 1999, is a modern urban shopping mall in the central part of Providence, Rhode Island, near the Rhode Island State House and Union Station. Composed of three main floors, the mall is connected via skyway to the nearby Westin Hotel and Rhode Island Convention Center. It also features several streetside restaurants. There are 160 stores in all.

The 1.4 million ft² (130,000 m²) facility was constructed in 1999 at the cost of $460 million. Planning for a mall in Providence had begun as early as 1985, but no plan was feasible until 1996 due to the large amount of land needed and the traffic problems the mall would create.

History

The mall has 7 levels in total. The lowest 3 levels, labeled C-A, are below the main level, with street-level stores (level C being parking-only and below street level in the front), the fourth through sixth levels are labeled 1-3 and have the indoor galleria, and the seventh level has a Dave & Buster's, an IMAX theatre, and 16-screen cinema. The mall's southern end (facing Downtown) is called Cityside, and the northern end (facing the State Capitol and other state office buildings) is called Stateside. The mall also hosts 2 large parking garages, one cityside and one stateside, anchored to its back end, with bridges connecting the two sides over the river.

The most noticeable feature in its architecture is its Winter Garden, a four-level structure in the center of the mall spanning the Woonasquatucket River and the Amtrak rail, providing the Acela service. Additionally, the Winter Garden features large expanses of glass providing views of the city. The third level of the Winter Garden contains the foodcourt and access to the fourth level of the wintergarten, which serves as the entrance to Dave and Busters, the IMAX theatre, and the cinema.
