Master Plan – Major Land Development

You are hereby notified that the Cranston City Plan Commission will meet to review the Master Plan for a proposed Major Land Development Project entitled “Knights Corner Development”.  This public informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, 6:30 P.M., in the Council Chamber of Cranston City Hall, 869 Park Avenue.

The subject parcel is located at 1388 & 1390 Cranston Street on Assessors Plat 8, Lots 203 and 2739.  The property owner is N.E. Development Fund 1 LLC and the applicant is 333 Main Street LLC, 201 Lippitt Avenue, Cranston, RI 02921.  The parcel is across the street from the Cranston Print Works property.

The entire parcel comprises 208,411 +/- square feet and is currently zoned M-1 Industrial.  The proposed Major Land Development project consists of plans to convert the former church building to a restaurant and build four new structures comprising 156 multi-family units.  An application for a change of zone for a special zoning district to allow uses in the C-2 Commercial district for the property is pending before the City Council and will require a separate notice, public meeting, and decision as part of this proposal. 

The land development project will be serviced by public water and sewer.

Plans for this proposed redevelopment will be available to review in person at the Planning Department, Cranston City Hall, between 8:30 A.M. – 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday, except for holidays. Additionally, all application materials and staff recommendations will be posted to the Planning Department website prior to public meeting at the following address:

Pursuant to the Cranston Subdivision and Land Development Regulations, the proposed plan may be revised by the City Plan Commission as a result of further study or because of views expressed at this meeting.
