[Renderings] Arts Exchange Building To Be Demoed For ‘Link Apartments Grant Park’

North Carolina-based Grubb Properties this week filed plans with the City of Atlanta for demolition, land development.

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.

  1. Booooo. That building is rad. The grounds are rad. Why aren’t developers adapting existing buildings like they used to?

    1. I know , right? This city has no clue about preservation. They will give a permit to anyone without evaluating the need or the complications of adding 200 apartments to an existing neighborhood.

      1. Not to mention the ludicrously high rents. High rents belong in Buckhead. Plus, I think more of these apartments should accept housing vouchers from the Atlanta Housing Authority (NOT Section 8)

  2. Yea, I am bummed out to hear this.. lets just tear down some cool history to put up.. Town Homes! WOOT!.. yea, lets destroy history and art to make way for more yuppy living..

    If they said they were going to build a theater and support the arts, perhaps have a community vibe, great! But like, stock bs that will only hurt the GP vibe. 🙁
