Grantovac was located along the Njegoševa street. Originally, it was a vast cornfield, full of reeds and stubble. When U.S. consul Edward Maxwell Grant bought the land in the area and built his house, urbanization began and the newly formed neighborhood, extension of Istočni Vračar from Cvetni Trg to Kalenić, was named Grantovac after the consul.
Neighborhood was known for many restaurants, barrooms and cafes in the Njegoševa street at the beginning of the 20th century, including one with the same name as the neighborhood (Grantovac). However, the name of the neighborhood, just like the adjoining Krunski Venac, later fell into obscurity and it is not used today.
