Memorial Drive Gets Facelift: Harp Transmission

Grant Park is already one of Atlanta’s hottest neighborhoods, and it’s about to get an upgrade.

For years, a run-down auto shop has been an eyesore by the beautiful Oakland Cemetery on Memorial Drive. That could soon change.

Developers Clark Property R+D and Pellerin Real Estatesubmitted paperwork to change the zoning on the property to allow for a redevelopment that will include office space, retail, and a restaurant, as well as a courtyard. The development will be called Harp Transmission.

The design is sleek — an all glass building with perforated metal — but residents of Grant Park aren’t likely to see it in-person for a few years. Bisnow reports that construction is pending zoning approval, and that they wouldn’t break ground until summer 2018 at the earliest.

But the fun may get started this summer. Space may be created to host a pop-up arts and cultural events space in the coming months.

That will fit in perfectly with the vibe in Grant Park, a neighborhood that continues to shine in Atlanta. The redevelopment hopes to set precedent as “Atlanta’s first park-oriented development” with construction likely to start in 2018.
