PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — Several state officials gathered in Pawtucket Tuesday to break ground on the renovation project at the Prospect Heights Apartments.

Officials said the renovations will cost roughly $42 million. Gov. Gina Raimondo and Pawtucket Mayor Don Grebien were among the people to launch the project, being implemented by WinnCompanies and Omni Development.

The project will rehabilitate 292 apartments in 35 two-story buildings. It will also create 20 new housing units.

"All Rhode Islanders deserve to live somewhere that's safe and warm," Raimondo said. "This redevelopment is a perfect example of what government and the private sector can achieve when we work together. This is a great day for Rhode Island, the city of Pawtucket and most importantly, the people who will soon call these apartments home."
