New apartments coming soon behind Garden City

CRANSTON, R.I. -

New apartments are coming soon behind Garden City in Cranston.

A Providence architecture and development firm is converting the empty Cranston-Johnston Catholic Regional School into 20 loft-style apartments.

The apartments will range from smaller 700 square-foot, single-bedroom units up to larger 1,200 square-foot two-bedroom units.

"We'll be doing a full-gut renovation," said Robert Williams of Truthbox, Inc.

Construction is slated to begin later this summer.

Williams said the firm is also constructing a new apartment building with 32 luxury-style units.

The building will feature underground parking elevator access, a fitness room, and all the units will have modern appliances and small porches.

The apartments come at a time when Garden City is expanding and new stores have been coming in.

"It's our belief that there is a movement out away from the big suburban house. People want to live in the heart of something where they can be a part of the community and where they have all the amenities and access to all the great things that are happening at Garden City," said Jordan Durham of D+P Real Estate.

Both buildings are scheduled to be open in the spring of 2015.
