Glenwood Place Demolition Has Begun!

The sign has been out front for a while, announcing “Glenwood Place, Spring 2014”. Considering that it’s Winter 2015, I was beginning to wonder if it would ever be a reality. As an Atlanta Realtor who works in the Grant Park area, and as a home owner in Grant Park, only blocks from this location, I am thrilled that demolition has begun to prepare for the Kroger shopping center on Glenwood Ave. across from Maynard Jackson High School.

Driving on Glenwood today, I noticed signs of activity there. I passed the lot entrance and was so excited when I thought I saw progress that I turned around and went into the parking lot. There’s an official-looking construction office trailer on the southwest edge of the site, near Glenwood Ave., and there were some official looking guys in hard hats standing around, so I asked what was going on.

They confirmed my hopes… Demolition has begun! It’s at the back of the site, so it’s hard to see it from the road. The entire site should be cleared in a few weeks.

The tentative design of the new Kroger was discussed at the Grant Park Neighborhood Association meeting on Tuesday evening. Although the design is not finalized, it seems it will be a reality in the not-too-distant future!
