Built in the Greek Revival style in 1828, the Arcade is the United States’ oldest indoor shopping mall. After a $7 million renovation by the Northeast Collaborative Architects, the ground level contains 17 micro-shops and the upper two levels contain 48 low-cost micro-apartments. The micro-apartments are furnished and range in size from 225 to 450 square feet. The Arcade was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. The Providence Preservation Society placed it on its list of the city’s 10 most endangered properties.
