You might have noticed that mall-shopping is becoming more and more outdated. Many giant malls that used to attract millions of adults (and teenagers) are being abandoned, but the oldest US mall has been renovated and transformed!
The Arcade in Providence, Rhode Island is now home to tons of “microlofts” between 250 and 800 sq. ft. There was so much interest in the apartments, there’s now a long waiting list, and there aren’t even model apartments open for show! When they first opened, apartments started at just $550/month, but the website no longer quotes that price.
Way to reuse and recycle, though, rather than tearing down a historical landmark! Do you think we’ll see more of this in the future?
