In the fall of 2021, the installation was moved to a safe location donated by Banneker Supply Chain Solutions. After undergoing extensive restoration under the guidance of Barbara Thornton, of Brewster Thornton Group Architects, LLP, and Alex Mendoza of Gilbane Building Company, the installation was moved to a final staging space donated by Tavares, LLC for the remaining restoration work.

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