Mayor O'Leary joined Office of Governor Dannel P. Malloy and state Housing Commissioner Evonne Klein today at the groundbreaking for the new Warner Gardens housing complex. This project was built in 1942 as housing for temporary factory workers. It became the first black-owned housing cooperative in the state but had fallen into disrepair in recent years. Omni Development of Providence RI is now building 122 units of affordable housing. Mayor O'Leary was proud to take part in this event and pleased to see this new housing being built.
