New Edgewood Yacht Club Building Nears Completion
January 31, 2018
Cranston Herald: Like the mythical Phoenix that rose from the ashes to fly, Edgewood Yacht Club has risen to stand again in the wake of a 2011 winter storm fire that left the Victorian-era building that had survived the worst of hurricanes a smoldering mass on top of charred pilings.
The resurrection of the clubhouse has been an arduous process of permitting and fundraising, followed by seemingly endless months of pile driving to meet the demanding height requirements of the structure—not to mention ADA and fire code regulations.
But the clubhouse is no longer a dream and, while walls have yet to be built, an elevator must still be installed and floors remain to be finished, the club is booking events with the first “Sunday Sailing” banquet set for April 29.
