Business owners in the historic Latta Arcade and Brevard Court in Uptown Charlotte are marking the building's 100th anniversary with an event and celebration. As Uptown continues to grow, Latta Arcade has remained a symbol of Charlotte's ability to grow without losing a sense of community. The Arcade, which opened in 1915, was originally designed to house small businesses and shops. To this day, it is still a neighborhood-like community of locally-owned businesses and shops. The businesses are offering a day of festivities that include specials, live music in the courtyard, and a display of historical photos and period advertisements from the building's history.
