225 Weybosset is located in the heart of Downcity, Providence on the highly visible corner of Weybosset and Mathewson Streets, directly across from the Providence Preforming Arts Center and one block from Johnson and Wales University.  Downtown Providence, also known as the historic Downcity District, is the epicenter of Providence's economic, political, and cultural community. Weybosset Street is the oldest thoroughfare in downtown Providence and was originally part of the Pequot Trail, an expansive route along the east coast used by the Native Americans.  Today, it is the central artery to Providence's cultural and economic anchors.
