Facts

  • This was originally planned in the 1920s as an adjunct to the Grove Arcade, one of the first indoor shopping malls in the United States.
  • The building and the arcade are named after their developer, who became rich selling a quinine drink called Grove's Chill Tonic at the turn of the 20th Century.
  • The proposed 14-floor tower would have rested atop a 5-floor base and contained shops, offices and living spaces.
  • Only the 269,000 square-foot base was ever constructed, and it still operates as a shopping center in the heart of downtown Asheville to this day.
  • The steel supports for this building still exist, although the tower never began construction due to the death of Dr. Grove in 1927.
