Poor Pawtucket. Several years ago, they wanted to find someone to help them build a new stadium for their soccer team, the Rhode Island FC. Then in 2019, this mystery group, called Fortuitous Partners (FP), told city officials about their $400 million plan that involved building a soccer stadium downtown along with other amenities. Brett Johnson, a developer for FP, got everyone excited with talk of creating a “365-day-a-year destination with sports entertainment, retail, food, and then putting hotels and multifamily around them”. Specifically, the project would include a 10,000-seat soccer stadium, new apartments, offices, and a hotel to name just some. Maybe the best part? FP could have this ready for the 2024 season.
