In Providence Rhode Island, the Providence Place Mall was just being built. The mall was brand new, and had 1.4 million square feet with 160 stores… it also startled the Am track NE corridor train line and Woonis Nantuckit River. This cost $500 MILLION and was designed as a mega shopping destination to help stimulate the cities economy.
-During the time of construction, a local artist and city resident, MICHAEL TOWNSEND, noticed something unusual about the construction of this building every time he would be out jogging past to the point where it stood out to him. Right by the river there were 2 large walls that almost touched but didn’t… as a result, there was a gap in the middle which lead to a large vacant spot. The space was too oddly shaped to be a store, and far too angular to be part of a parking garage.. It looked like some sort of design accident. It was something that Michael noticed, but didn’t really look much further into…until 4 years later..
