PROJECT DESCRIPTION

On February 10, 2003, the Neighborhood Charter School, housed in a building originally constructed for the Atlanta Public School System in the historic Grant Park neighborhood, was substantially destroyed by fire. Using insurance funds and additional money raised by the community, a contemporary school was built within the original three-story shell. The exterior brick skin of the historic structure, built in 1907, was preserved and restored, with energy efficient windows of similar style replacing the original ones lost to the fire.
