50 Kennedy Plaza (formerly known as Fleet Center) is a Postmodern skyscraper in Providence, Rhode Island. At a height of 285 ft (87 m), it is currently the sixth-tallest building in the city and state. The building is named for Kennedy Plaza.
Its exterior façade is done in "granite framing green-reflective-glass side elevations". Its location, sandwiched between the 125 m (410 ft) One Financial Center and the 130 m (430 ft) Industrial National Bank Building, ostensibly detracts from its height with architectural historian Wm Woodward calling it, "a trifle too low for the site", though in the company of the aforementioned buildings, it forms part of one of the most identifiable parts of the Providence skyline. It is this section of the Providence skyline that is featured on the animated television series Family Guy.
