Both a City Landmark and a National Historic Landmark, The Arcade is situated in the heart of the central corridor of historic downtown St. Louis across from the Old Post Office, facing Olive Street and occupying much of the square block from Olive to Pine between 8th and 9th Streets. Named for the spectacular two-story interior rib-vaulted shopping arcade or “interior street” that runs the distance from Olive to Pine, and inspired by the galleries of Milan and Naples, The Arcade is one of the city’s best examples of a Gothic Revival skyscraper.
Plans for the 18-story Arcade Building of 1913 – originally designed as a separate structure by architect, Tom Barnett – were revised to integrate the adjacent Wright Building of 1907, wrapping the exterior around its north and west sides.
The Arcade makes a dramatic statement in its facade on Olive Street, with its large arcade entrance, enormous second-story bay windows, and intricate Gothic detailing and terra cotta ornamentation. Its Pine Street frontage is both smaller and more inhibited. Although originally dubbed “the giant of downtown”, the smaller Wright building, designed by architects Eames & Young – with its strong vertical brick piers – is evocative of a simpler and more American style of architecture.
Modeled on successful prototypes in larger cities to the east and originally offered as “a city within a city”, The Arcade housed top-notch retail merchants in its first six floors and offices in the upper stories. Vacant since 1978, The Arcade was designated a City Landmark in 1980. Eligible for a listing in the National Register of Historic Places that same year, it was so listed in 2003.
The genesis and development of the historic Arcade Apartments renovation project – a jewel of the city’s downtown revitalization strategy – is the result of Dominium’s collaboration with many area groups and organizations including the city, Webster University, and Downtown St. Louis, Inc.
Amid a very dynamic downtown regeneration, The Arcade joins – in the most recent round of revitalization efforts – other noteworthy undertakings like the The National Blues Museum and the CityArchRiver project.
