The Altus Center is home to the headquarters of Delta Dental, Rhode Island’s largest dental insurer. The 3.85 acre site is located in downtown Providence along the banks of the Moshassuck River within view of the state’s capital building. The landscape was designed and installed by The Garden Continuum and is managed by their Chief Operations Officer Chris Allen. The collection of trees, including elm, birch, cherry, cedar, and crab apples, creates the structure that frames a large variety of flowering shrubs, perennials and groundcovers. Seasonal plantings of annuals, bulbs, and decorated planters make this an inviting, comfortable, as well as beautiful place to work.
