Like courts, jewelry trade center fits in Providence.

Abstract

"When the state of Rhode Island determined that a new court facility was needed in the Providence area in the late 1970s, a strong case was made to locate it on the state land near the Adult Correctional Institution in Cranston. A site there would have adequate space for parking, easy access off of Route 95 and a proximity of court to jail that would seem to make it a natural choice, given our propensity to site buildings and functions with deference to cars rather than people."
