National Historic Landmark is Upcycled into Apartments

​We ran across this article from Inhabitat​, and just had to share it! 

Providence Arcade, the first U.S. indoor shopping mall, is being transformed into a new micro apartment complex. Originally built in 1828, the historic building is known for its classic Greek architecture and iconic columns. It was closed in 2008 for renovations, but took a completely different direction instead.

Complete with kitchen appliances (minus an oven), full bathroom and pull down bed – the micro-sized apartment has just about everything you could need. The complex also provides additional storage space, a laundry room and a common area for residents to mingle.
