Significance: Constructed ca. 1939, the Costello Brothers, Inc. Warehouse is significant for its associations with the development of the Provisions Warehouse District of Providence. The building housed the Costello Brothers, Inc., an important local distributor of various brands of liquor, tobacco, and confectionary products. The building is also significant as a refined example of the Art Moderne style as it was applied to industrial structures throughout the United States in the mid-twentieth century.
