As of the fall of 2021, the installation has been moved to a safe location generously donated by Banneker Supply Chain Solutions. Here it is undergoing painstakingly thorough cleaning, repair, rebuilding, and restoration under the guidance of Barbara Thornton, of Brewster Thornton Group Architects, LLP, and Alex Mendoza of Gilbane Building Company.

The 9-11 Wall of Hope Monument will be installed at its new home in downtown Providence, R.I. and unveiled to the public on 9-11-2022.
