Grant Park Apartments and Real Estate
Grant Park Atlanta has a mix of homes and apartments that, for a historic neighborhood, can be surprisingly affordable.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Grant Park's character has been preserved by restrictions that require renovations and new construction to be compatible with the neighborhood's architecture. You can find apartments and houses that look historic but are newly constructed, with up-to-date features.
For starters, there's GlenCastle, an apartment complex located in what was once Georgia's oldest prison. Designed to be "entry level housing," the 64 studio apartments at GlenCastle range in size from 320 square feet to 510 square feet. Monthly rent ranges from $400 to $525 per month, depending on the unit's size. The building is managed by Charis Community Housing, a nonprofit ministry, and application requires a criminal background check.
The Burnett at Grant Park, located on Confederate Avenue, has one- and two-bedroom units, with rent ranging from $930 to $1,530 per month. Amenities include a fitness center and valet trash removal.
You can also find condominiums here for rent or purchase.
