The Arcade in Providence, RI


This should be an interesting mini Loft Project. The Arcade is the country’s first indoor shopping mall. On Wednesday, developers announced that it’s being transformed into a mix of retail shops, restaurants and lofts.

The ground level of the 180-year old building will hold three restaurants and a dozen new shops. The top two floors will become home to 48 micro-lofts, mostly studio spaces with an average of 250 square feet.

The Arcade was built in 1828 and is a National Historic Landmark. The building closed in 2008 because of the poor economy.
