The Sister Dominica Manor, also known as Federal Hill Manor and originally called Bradford House, is a high-rise building located in the Federal Hill district of Providence, Rhode Island. Standing at 175 feet (53 meters), it is currently the 15th-tallest building in the city.[1] The Sister Domininca Manor has 16 floors, and was completed in 1966.

The Sister Dominica Manor was constructed as the tallest of three low-income elderly housing projects built by Rhode Island Housing and the city of Providence in the 1960s.[2] It was the tallest all-residential building in Providence until late 2007, when the Waterplace Towers were completed.[3]
