MAIN MAN -- Beauparlant hopes Main St. block party kicks off resurgence of city

August 24, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The first house he ever bought as a real estate investment was the one he grew up in on Cass Avenue.

Albert G. Beauparlant Jr. did a little work on the property and sold it to his brother, nearly 30 years ago.

It was an auspicious beginning.

The self-employed real estate developer and member of the Woonsocket Redevelopment Agency says he’s been involved in hundreds of development projects since then, from the 1980s rehab of the landmark Longley Building on Main Street to the $6.2 million Conley’s Wharf in Providence.
