New residences will bring more housing options to junction of Grant, Glenwood parks

The hauntingly beautiful Atlanta Stockade building, slated for conversion into a “creative office campus” to be known as GlenCastle, could soon be neighbored by a shiny new development.

According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle and Fulton County property records, the nearly four-acre site sold for more than $5 million. The land includes the former Atlanta Arts Exchange campus, which was originally constructed as a school.

The "New" Grant Park School, built in 1930 on the site of an earlier school by the same name, will be demolished to allow North Carolina-based Grubb Properties to build 240 apartments, which will complement GlenCastle.

While the new apartments could be a welcome addition to the booming neighborhood, preservationists have had their eye on the project for a year—though from many accounts the building was in very rough shape.

One of three buildings, The Stockade is the main structure on the GlenCastle property.

Residents of the new apartments will be just up the hill from Fuqua’s Glenwood Place development as well as the Beltline trail at Bill Kennedy Parkway—when it exists.
