Grant Park Neighborhood

Crown Candy Lofts sits one block from the entrance to Oakland Cemetery and at the northern edge of the historic Grant Park neighborhood.

Grant Park is one of Atlanta's oldest and most important historic districts.  It is bordered by the Cabbagetown and Old Fourth Ward neighborhoods to the north, Ormewood Park on the east, Boulevard Heights on the southeast, Chosewood Park on the south, and Downtown Atlanta, Summerhill and Peoplestown on the west.

Together with Inman Park, Grant Park contains the largest remaining area of Victorian Architecture in Atlanta. Most buildings were built between the neighborhood's founding in 1882 and the first decades of the 20th century. Large two-story mansions face the park, more modest two-story, modified Queen Anne houses were built on surrounding streets, and one-story Victorian era cottages and Craftsman Bungalows were built to the east of the park.  

In recent years, Memorial Drive and the surrounding area has become one of Atlanta's hotspots for nightlife and good food.  The neighborhood boasts a broad selection of attractions, restaurants and entertainment.
