Oldest Mall Apartments

Northeast Collaborative Architects transformed America’s oldest mall in Providence, Rhode Island space into a mixed-use housing with 17 shops on the ground floor and 48 micro-apartments on the second floor. Rent starts at $550 a month for a one-bedroom unit that spans 225-450 square feet in size. Each unit offers a built-in bed, full bathroom, refrigerator, sink, microwave, dishwasher, seating, as well as plenty of storage. There’s a shared TV room, game room, on-site laundry facility, bike storage area, and parking garage for residents. Continue reading to watch a grand video tour of these micro apartments.

” For those who would like more space, there’s also a two-bedroom and three-bedroom unit available. The only catch is that there’s a waiting list with about 4,000 people currently on it. As for the building as a whole, it stays true to its original Greek Revival style. It resembles a light-filled atrium complete with regal columns that pay homage to its historic presence. It now serves as inspiration for all other shopping malls out there,” according to My Modern Met.
