The goal is to improve accessibility to the Riverwalk and Waterplace Park and to prep the area for sea-level rise. (The park and Riverwalks often flood at high tide)
It looks like these concepts grew out of the Imagine Downtown Providence initiative spearheaded by ARUP and includes a new pedestrian walkway over Memorial Boulevard.

The last image appears to be a concept for a reimagined Waterplace Basin.

This project recently received $7.8 million in federal funding (Boston Globe).

There's something very "game show set" about that basin render. Makes it look like they're turning it into some kayak-based version of BattleBots.
