The hair salon is being pushed out of its Buckhead location by the forthcoming 244-unit Alexan Pharr Road apartment complex from developer Trammel Crow Residential.

“It’s tough to leave, but I’m so excited to move to Grant Park where I live,” Goddard said. “I can’t wait for my business to be a part of the community I love and call home.”

The Grant Park hair solon, at 332 Ormond Street SE, expected to open December 1, has been on Goddard’s mind for some time after frequently walking by the space that has been “unoccupied since 1992.”

“I called the landlord, who also lives in the neighborhood, not knowing what would become of the building, and a week later I had a lease.”

Renovations on the hair salon’s 830-square-foot space will cost an estimated $30,000. The entire structure is over 5,000-square-feet, and there are plans for a restaurant and yoga studio to occupy the remaining spaces, according to Goddard.

Landlord Philippe Pellerin was not immediately available for comment.

Oh I am so excited about this … I’ve been wondering what was coming in – and I could use a new hair place … especially one I can walk to!
