Latta Arcade, Charlotte

Visitors to Charlotte will almost certainly find themselves at Latta Arcade. This indoor shopping area is two floors of shopping and restaurants with large windows and a massive glass skylight.

Latta Arcade was constructed in 1914 by architect William H. Peeps. It was the brainchild of Edward Dilworth Latta, an area retailer and real estate magnate. His idea was to have a first floor retail area that would be attractive to visitors and shop owners. His offices, Charlotte Consolidated Construction Company, were located on the second floor.

Visitors continue to enjoy Latta Arcade, thanks to the welcoming space, period architecture and easy availability of local shops and dining. They can try everything from pizza to salad to all-day breakfast and authentic Indian cuisine.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Early risers will appreciate the availability of Latta Arcade. It is open Monday through Friday from 7 AM through 6 PM.
