Rhodes Hall, The Georgia Trust’s headquarters in Midtown, is becoming more energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable thanks to a $50,000 grant from The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta and matching funds from The Georgia Trust Board of Trustees.

The Trust plans to implement a sustainable rehabilitation of Rhodes Hall, constructed in 1904 for furniture magnate Amos Giles Rhodes, which will feature energy efficient, state-of-the-art HVAC and insulation systems and many other innovations. This will be achieved alongside a sensitive historic restoration, providing a modern model for the stewardship of historic buildings.

The Georgia Trust is implementing the first stage of Rhodes Hall’s “greening” by installing more efficient HVAC systems on the main and second floors and more effective insulation systems in the basement and attic.
