COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The old Rose Hill Alternative School building in Columbus will soon undergo a transformation.

This comes after the Muscogee County School Board signed off on a deal to sell the property.

This Rose Hill Center, a historic piece of property built 100 years ago as an elementary school, has been vacant since it closed as an alternative program.

On Monday night, the Muscogee County School Board voted to sell the property located on 21st Street in Columbus to a buyer called the Rose Hill Development.

We do know the buyer is a Chicago-based company known as Celedon Holdings, LLC. The price tag for the property is $535,000.

The plan is to turn the building into apartments, but what type of apartments is unclear.

We have reached out to the new owners to get details about their plans.
