Crossroads officials said the development will be the state’s first-of-its-kind, permanent supportive apartment complex for medically vulnerable adults experiencing homelessness.

In total, Santilli said the complex will provide 35 new apartment as well as on-site amenities like common areas, gardens, laundry facilities and parking.

Crossroads said it plans to begin site work at Pine Street later this year and anticipates completion in early 2025.

Previously, Crossroads completed renovations at the former Beach Avenue apartment in Warwick into four permanent supportive apartments for families experiencing homelessness.
