PAWTUCKET, R.I. (AP) - Pawtucket city officials are considering a development proposal for a long-vacant parcel of land along the riverfront.

Mayor Donald Grebien announced Tuesday that the city’s evaluation team is encouraging the city council to approve the proposal.

Officials say the proposal by real estate development company Peregrine Group, LLC, includes a mix of market-rate residential apartments, commercial space and retail space. The project would include 8,000 square feet of commercial space and 214 apartment units.

The proposal also calls for a public river walk that would connect to the newly renovated Festival Pier waterfront park and boat ramp.

Grebien says the project has the potential to serve as a catalyst to drive economic growth along the riverfront.

The proposal will be given to the Pawtucket City Council for review and approval.
