Are you looking to do something different in 2017? How about buying a 37,000-square-foot shopping street in the heart of London?
Designed by architect Samuel Ware and completed in 1819, the historic Burlington Arcade is a sort of proto shopping mall built for top-hatted toffs to buy jewelry and “fancy articles of fashionable demand.” The arcade’s then-unique design inspired copycat structures across Europe.
Still, nearly two centuries after it opened, the glass-covered shopping street is still the longest covered shopping street in the U.K., bustling with more than three million shoppers a year visiting stores like Chanel and Rolex.
Currently owned by real estate investment company Meyer Bergman and Thor Equities, the entire thing is now up for sale for a cool £400 million ($499 million).
