If you’re considering buying a Grant Park condominium, get excited, because Grant Park is the place to be.
Grant Park is Atlanta’s oldest city park and the fourth largest in the city. It was also the first land donated to Atlanta specifically to serve as a public park. In 1882, railroad engineer and businessman, Lemuel P. Grant donated the 100 acres of land that is now Grant Park. The park is home to historic landmarks including the Erskine Memorial Fountain, Constitution Spring, The Fountain at Milledge Avenue, and more. The park officially opened in 1883, and the rest is history.
Nestled in Eastside Atlanta, Grant Park serves as the perfect playground for Atlantans craving natural beauty in the heart of the city. It’s home to the Atlanta Zoo, miles of walking paths, and dozens of annual festivals drawing in visitors from all around.
Grant Park also houses the beloved Grant Park Farmers Market, offering locally-grown veggies, meats, breads, and artisanal foods from more than 60 vendors. It’s no surprise the Grant Park Farmers Market is consistently voted as the #1 farmers market in Atlanta. One of the latest additions to the park is the quaint Grant Park Market, a specialty grocery store offering park goers a wonderful selection of breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and flowers.
According to Atlanta Magazine, Grant Park is “in the middle of a southeast Atlanta development boom, with hundreds of millions of dollars in new housing and retail planned or underway in the surrounding area,” and the growth shows no signs of slowing down.
In April of 2017, Mayor Kasim Reed unveiled plans for the Grant Park Gateway Project, a $48-million parking deck on Boulevard Avenue. Not only will this project more than double parking at the park, it will also feature a rooftop green space, serving as a meeting place for park-goers to gather and relax. The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2018.
Grant Park’s Zoo Atlanta is also in the midst of a historic transformation. The Grand New View project, set to open in 2019, will bring new life to the Cyclorama building and include a one-of-a-kind event destination overlooking an all-new African savanna.
Finally, Grant Park is near the soon-to-be home of the BeltLine Southside Trail, a 4-mile stretch running from Glenwood Avenue to University Avenue, providing easy access to Krog Street Market, Peoplestown and beyond.
