Pawtucket, RI Launches $400M Economic Development Project
The largest economic development project in Pawtucket, RI’s history will transform the city’s waterfront with hundreds of thousands of square feet of new development, including a new professional soccer team that will compete in the USL Championship – the second division of professional soccer in the United States.
“Today is an exciting first step towards a $400 million investment in Pawtucket’s future,” said Governor Gina M. Raimondo. “This economic development project will establish a professional soccer team from a leading national league here in Rhode Island, revitalize the waterfront and downtown and create more than 3,500 jobs. Most importantly, it will transform this area into a vibrant hub of activity like we haven’t seen in decades.”
