2002 - Grove Arcade Reopens

Following years of construction and restoration, the historic Grove Arcade reopened in late 2002 to the welcoming arms of the Asheville community. Rather than endless rows of filing cabinets,  local crafts & arts, shopping, restaurants, local services, office spaces and 42 luxury apartments now fill the building’s iconic and illustrious architecture.

Today, the Grove Arcade serves its original purpose through E.W. Grove’s vision as the heart and character of Asheville. Grove Arcade also remains Western North Carolina’s largest commercial building and has become an essential downtown resource for both residents and visitors.

We thank everyone who fought to restore and preserve this historic building. Through your effort, future generations can admire the architecture and come together as a community within these walls, just as E.W. Grove had dreamed about over one hundred years ago.
