O'Connor Capital Partners has begun a major revitalization of the lobby in its downtown Providence "100 Westminster" office building. The 20-story, rose-colored granite and emerald-green, reflective-glass tower provides more than 360,000 square feet of prime office space and street-front retail stores in the heart of the city's financial district. An underground garage provides on-site parking for 120 cars, and there is easy access to other nearby parking facilities and public transportation. New York-based OCP purchased the property from Bank of America in November 2006.
Inside, the new design will transform the current mall-like interior into a more sophisticated office lobby environment with elimination of interior entrances and establishment of a more central front desk. New granite with wood paneling and marble columns will provide a fresh contemporary look, while a gallery-like interior will highlight the work of local artists and create a sophisticated corporate environment. Construction is scheduled to be completed in the fall.
