With his city’s fiscal position stabilized, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras has turned toward growing the local economy and redeveloping underutilized properties. That’s brought him up against some of the most difficult and expensive challenges in Rhode Island. They include saving its tallest building, the Industrial Trust Tower, and its most spectacular historic-redevelopment failure, the South Street Power Station (Dynamo House). They also include bringing long-sought streetcar service to the capital city and replacing abundant surface parking lots with productive, activity-generating buildings.
