Conant Thread is a 150 acre Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) District conveniently located between Providence and Boston; connected to both via Interstate 95 and soon a new train station and bus hub. A mixed-use urban village, Conant Thread is attracting trendy restaurants, start-ups, art innovators, makers and creators. It offers residents a complete urban experience with a diverse and exciting mix of cuisine, culture, economic opportunity and public amenities.
Located in the Cities of Pawtucket and Central Falls, the epicenter of the American Industrial Revolution, Conant Thread is the once-in-a-lifetime, twenty-first century development opportunity that will form a second urban center for the State of Rhode Island and a robust exurban economic opportunity for Greater Boston.
There are 2 million square feet of vacant or underutilized historic mill space and another 2 million square feet of development opportunity for new construction in the Conant Thread district in downtown Pawtucket, home of the PawSox and historic Slater Mill.
