Credit 1 - Site Selection:  This is a previously developed site.

Credit 2 - Development Density & Community Connectivity: Rhode Island Hall is located in a mixed-use urban environment, close to many basic services on the East Side.

Credit 4.1 - Alternative Transportation, Public Transportation Access: Rhode Island Hall is located within a quarter mile of several Providence bus stops as well as a Safe Ride stop that building occupants can use free of charge. This mitigates the building's impact on the environment by encouraging building occupants to utilize public mass-transit, thereby combating global warming by reducing the pollution otherwise created from automobile use.

Credit 4.2 - Alternative Transportation, Bicycle Storage & Changing Rooms: Shower and changing facilities are located across the street from Rhode Island Hall at Horace Mann House. Bicycle storage will be on-site, further encouraging alternative transportation use instead of fossil-fuel intensive travel.

Credit 5.2 - Site Development, Maximize Open Space: Rhode Island Hall is located on the Main Green, so occupants have easy access to open space.
