Plans to demolish a 1930s school building most recently home to the Atlanta Arts Exchange are moving forward.
North Carolina-based Grubb Properties is developing one of its “Link” communities at the site, a company spokesperson Friday exclusively shared with What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone interview.
Several permit applications this week were submitted to the City of Atlanta for the project, including demolition and land development.
Called Link Apartments Grant Park, the multifamily development is expected to go vertical in Q4 of 2018.
Once complete, Link Apartments Grant Park will offer 213 apartment units and 16 townhomes.
Amenities include a clubhouse, fitness center, yoga room, dog park, secure bike storage, and an outdoor terrace area.
A “communal green plaza-area” will connect Link Apartments Grant Park with “GlenCastle,” a neighboring adaptive-reuse project of the Atlanta Stockade complex—which includes as the centerpiece a castle-like building that once served as Atlanta’s prison.
