Have you heard of Glenwood Park yet? This is one of Intown Advisors favorite Intown, Atlanta neighborhoods! Let us know if this neighborhood could be a fit for you!
Glenwood Park is a unique neighborhood between Grant Park and East Atlanta, two miles from downtown, developed to embody the principles of new urbanism. Conceived as a community that would feel like a small town with a classic main street environment, it’s a 28-acre “green” showplace that was reclaimed from a brownfield strewn with concrete from an abandoned concrete recycling facility.
The development is a walkable neighborhood with a town square; on-street parallel parking; tree-lined streets; pocket parks; a pool; office space; civic buildings; and a thriving mix of retail establishments. It’s a testament to the developers’ belief in “the good life” – living in a diverse neighborhood where it’s possible to walk short distances to interesting destinations, experience nature and still be in Atlanta.
The first residents moved in back in 2004.
For its use of environmentally conscious building features, water management, landscaping and civic involvement, Glenwood Park is a certified EarthCraft Community. EarthCraft standards were developed by the Southface Energy Institute and the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association. Glenwood Park offers condominiums above shops, townhouses and detached single family homes. And common green features include, reclaimed wood flooring; low-VOC flooring; no-VOC and bio-resistant paint; tankless water heaters; programmable thermostats and lighting control systems; ENERGY STAR lighting and appliances; high-efficiency HEPA filters; and high-performance windows.
