Representative David Cicilline took a tour of Tockwotton on the Waterfront this week, anxious to get a first-hand perspective on the first development in East Providence’s Waterfront District, south of I-195. The $52.3 million, 137,754-square foot, five-story construction project currently employs more than 200 union and non-union laborers and is on track to open its doors to 156 seniors on December 15. At that time, it will represent the region’s largest and most comprehensive community of care for seniors built within the past decade.
The non-profit Tockwotton Community has been serving seniors in the Greater Providence area since 1856 and has established itself as a five-star Medicare community. At the new location, Tockwotton will offer assisted living and memory care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing care residences. All 66 current residents will move to Tockwotton on the Waterfront and deposits are currently being accepted for the additional 90 private apartments. “We’re about 90 percent reserved with four and a half months until our move date,” said Executive Director Kevin McKay. “Once construction is complete and people can see the unique layout and amenities, I’m certain that we’ll have 100 percent occupancy,” he added. “People appreciate quality care, a beautiful new home and the rich tradition that Tockwotton offers.”
