WBNA Honors KITE with Community Development Award

The West Broadway Neighborhood Association recognized the efforts of KITE to construct the new building at 1577 Westminster Street along with Barbara Sokoloff Associates at their annual meeting on January 11, 2011.

KITE’s design had won a neighborhood-judged design competition at the WBNA’s annual meeting in 2004. Despite a number of setbacks with financing of the project, it came to life with the sponsorship and involvement of Spurwink RI, which provides and manages housing for adults with developmental disabilities.

The project is nearing completion and will be ready for occupancy in Spring of 2011, and plans to open an organic grocery store for the neighborhood in the ground floor space are underway.
