The concert venue known for its three stages-Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory — has signed a lease to stay at least 10 years at the downtown project.

This week’s Atlanta Business Chronicle reports The Masquerade plans to invest about $700,000 into expanding its spot in Kenny’s Alley at Underground, growing from about 9,000 square feet to 20,000 square feet. A permit for the work was recently filed at the city of Atlanta.

The largest concert space Heaven will become a two-story venue with balcony seating. To accomplish this, a portion of the former food court at Underground will be removed. Heaven will close in mid-December and is expected to reopen in February.
