Pony Up $2.3M and Make this Grant Park Church a ... ?

New, 8 comments


Across Atlanta, churches are being resurrected as condos, offices and even comedy venues, but none of those projects matches the scope of this sprawling compound in Grant Park. Listed a couple of weeks ago for $2.35 million, it's being marketed to growing congregations or developers, and the location might be the right bait to entice the latter. This 27,000-square-foot amalgam of sanctuary and classrooms is more than twice the size of Dad's Garage's future Old Fourth Ward home, and it's practically smack dab between the neighborhood's eponymous park and the Beltline's future Southeast Trail — both amenities being a few blocks left or right. Inside, the 1955 structure is like an altar to drop-ceilings, with one cavernous sanctuary, a decidedly pro-grade kitchen, a labyrinth of hallways and offices and a meditation room to boot. Per the listing, there's parking for 40 cars on site and additional spaces on the street. A "vibrant, active and diverse congregation" called The Vision Church acquired this house of worship in 2010, calling it the "greatest miracle in (church) history," on their website. What other miracles could be in store for this space?
