Curbed reports that the venue will move into a new home inside a large low-rise building in the 1400 block of Fairmont Avenue.

Randy E. Pimsler, a principal at Pimsler Hoss Architects, is heading the renovation. The firm is also behind The Jane in Grant Park.

Pimsler told Curbed that The Masquerade will be one of a few tenants at the adaptive-reuse development.

A LoopNet listing from 2012 indicates that the ceilings of the building are 19 feet tall, and the space is sized at roughly 80,000 square feet.

The Masquerade will close at its current location after The Wrecking Ball ATL 2016, which takes place August 13 and 14. Plans call for the new Westside venue to open the very next week on the weekend of August 20.

I was hoping they’d rebuild something similar to the original layout but bigger with more seating then the actual masquerade has now with alot more parking…however it’s about the same distance in the said chosen area so I’m okay with this!

So, what is going to happen to the building that the Masquerade currently is in? Its a historical site.
