Even with more and more people going out of poverty, the world is starting to lose space for every single human being. Thus, it only makes sense that a trend toward smaller homes has risen. After all, who needs so many rooms when you just want to have a peaceful and sustainable lifestyle?
Well, a housing developer just did something that has turned out to be such a fantastic idea. Read on!
The Providence Arcade is noted as the oldest mall in the United States.
It was built way back in 1828 and it was known as the very first indoor shopping mall in America. In fact, Providence Arcade is considered a National Historic Landmark.
Instead of opening it once again as a mall alone, he decided to construct micro-apartments that could also serve as potential business locations.
This is because the sun shines brightly in that area, and he wanted to maintain this wonderful scenery.
Even though this might seem small for some people, the residents are really proud of their places because they are made with precision and sustainability in mind.
In fact, there are so many people on the waiting list. They're hoping to live in Providence Arcade too.
This is a great place for people who want a secure place that also has historical significance.
Thus, the spirit of America's oldest indoor mall is kept while also providing people a chance to live in it too.
Instead of each one of them paying high rental fees to secure their respective shops, they worked alongside each other to keep this one instead.
Not only is the rental fee relatively cheaper, but you also get to realize the things you really need to thrive in the city because of the small size. Thus, you won't feel the need of buying stuff which you don't even need in the long run.
