An eastside project taking shape on a tight site between an interstate and acres of recent development hopes to put a unique spin on Atlanta apartment complex aesthetics, according to renderings.

As reported on these pages last week, the Glenwood Avenue project is situated just west of Glenwood Kroger (aka Krobar) and next to Interstate 20. It began vertical construction earlier this year and recently topped out at a half-dozen stories beneath a roofline with many gables.

Sources have confirmed it’s an apartment project by Atlanta-based Enfold Properties, a company founded in 2011 by developer Bill Bollwerk. Completed intown projects in Enfold’s portfolio include the nearby 841 Memorial apartments and Smith & Porter in Castleberry Hill.  

According to project architects Niles Bolton Associates, the new 85,150-square-foot Grant Park building will include 80 units, with nearby BeltLine trails being another selling point.

Property records indicate the formerly vacant 2.3 acres sold for $1.7 million in summer 2020 to an LLC called Enfold Glenwood.

The project stands adjacent to the hilltop GlenCastle complex, an adaptive-reuse of Atlanta’s historic, circa-1900 city jail by Urban Realty Partners completed in 2020.

GlenCastle now includes three structures (a stable and blacksmith shop were also converted) with 85,000 square feet of creative office space across 4 acres. According to Urban Realty Partners, GlenCastle was leased and stabilized earlier this year.

The Link townhomes and apartments by Charlotte-based Grubb Properties are also next door.
