Grove Arcade Architectural Tour


Welcome to the Grove Arcade architectural tour. It is a fanciful building, envisioned by the creator of the Grove Park Inn, that incorporates many architectural styles and served as one of the leading commercial buildings in the city in the 1930s. It was closed to the public in 1942. In the 1970s, public support grew for a return to its original use. And after an extensive renovation, it reopened in 2002. Today, the ground level is filled with an exciting mix of galleries, shops and restaurants.


The second floor is occupied by offices and the third through fifth floors house luxury apartments. Youโ€™ll notice as you enter the building that it was constructed on a slope. The buildingโ€™s designers followed the topography of the land, which makes for interesting spaces and changing levels throughout. We hope you enjoy our architectural tour, walking the marble halls, learning about Grove Arcadeโ€™s origins, and meeting the personalities who created it.
