Grant's grown by leaps and bounds in the last month, going from a flat lot to walls that give shape to the design and help people visualize what the finished product will look like. Take a look below at the start of the main entrance, gym, stage and library. The new Grant is expected to open early in winter 2020.

The alley between North Oakes Street and Grant Center for the Expressive Arts will close for most of January as a retaining wall is built on the school side of the alley.
It took about three weeks to bring down the old Grant Center for the Expressive Arts – all 4,000 tons of it. Trucks hauled off that material, including 3,397 tons of concrete and steel that were destined for recycling facilities.
About a year from now, Grant students will walk into their new building, ready to make a fresh set of memories.
Take a look at this time-lapse video showing the demolition.

Grant Center for the Expressive Arts is an arts-focused elementary school (K-5) currently serving approximately 340 students in Tacoma's North End. The current building was mostly constructed in 1955, but also includes parts built in 1920 and an addition in 1967.
Students will attend classes at the district's Hunt transition site during construction. Bus transportation will be provided.
