PROVIDENCE - Looking at the city skyline with numerous cranes on the horizon, the stars in the Rhode Island economic development galaxy appeared to have aligned for Gov. Gina Raimondo and Stefan Pryor, secretary of CommerceRI, during the last few weeks.

First, Commerce RI released the 16 responses to the RFP for the $20 million initiative to build one or more innovation campuses in partnership with URI on Friday, March 16, funded through a $20 million bond approved by voters.

Then, the last steel beam was put in place atop the Wexford Innovation Complex on Tuesday, March 27, with the expectation that the new facility, with its anchor tenants of Johnson & Johnson, Brown University and the Cambridge Innovation Center will open in 2019.
