This apartment complex was originally purchased by two young Muslim entrepreneurs in the Atlanta community. Although the apartment complex houses people from all religious and cultural backgrounds, it has been a safe haven for Muslim families. 

Glenrose Gardens offers more than simply housing for its residents. It offers a ‘Soul Space,’ which is a designated space for prayer and contemplation.

All faiths are welcome to use this designated prayer place but Muslim community members have been known to congregate there for prayer, talks, and classes.
