Havenwood, LLC hired for ambitious Chapel View Development in Cranston RI, 2006

Havenwood, LLC, a landscape architecture and site planning firm owned and headed by Principal Landscape Architect Alan R. Ahlstrom, RLA, CH has been hired by the prestigious group Carpionato Properties to assist in their ambitious project to develop the Chapel View Development in Cranston, RI.  Carpionato has been working with local, city, and state officials to develop the former site of the RI training school for delinquent youth.  In particular, the old chapel building is being restored to accommodate a five-star restaurant and gourmet shop and the old dormitories are being enhanced along with new buildings in order to create a mixed-use development with residential, commercial and retail/restaurant space.   

Havenwood LLC, under the direction of Alan Ahlstrom, will be responsible for the Landscape Master Plan of the Chapel Restaurant as well as providing landscape architectural services for the Lighting and Streetscapes (paving) throughout the project to enhance the site continuity and sense of place.  Plans for the site include presentations for approval by city and state historic commissions. 

“It is an honor to be chosen to assist Mr. Carpionato and his team to assist with such an important and ambitious project.  I look forward to the challenge of creating a landscape that is not only aesthetically-pleasing but one that honors the rich history of this site, in particular the Chapel itself.” 

The project is expected to continue in its development in the coming years.
