Colony Square to Host Groundbreaking Event Tuesday, October 10
ATL’s original mixed-used development begins major renovation … but first, a community celebration.
After years of planning, the much anticipated overhaul of Midtown’s first mixed-use development – Colony Square – will soon commence with a groundbreaking ceremony in the heart of it all.
You’re Invited: Colony Square Plaza - Tuesday, October 10 - from 3-5pm
North American Properties is extending an open invitation to the community, offering live entertainment, food, virtual reality tours, and a close-up look at the wrecking ball before it is called into service. Be part of the festivities on Tuesday, October 10 from 3-5pm. Details and RSVP info here.
A Landmark Project in Midtown
“This day begins Colony Square’s physical transformation into a central gathering place for our community - a true destination, rich with experiences, energy, events and entertainment,” said Kevin Green, president and CEO of Midtown Alliance. “This has been a long time coming, and we are excited to celebrate with the community as we all watch this landmark project unfold.”
Since Colony Square was first purchased in 2015 by North American Properties, the intersection at Peachtree and 15th Street has come alive with energy. Jam-packed with year-round programing, the turf at Colony Square has become a central location for outdoor yoga, live festivals, and holiday celebrations.
Expansion and Reintroduction
The reimagining of Colony Square comes at a time when live-work-play is becoming the standard for thriving places. As Atlanta continues to grow, locations with street-level energy are in demand among relocating residents and workers.
Following the needed renovations of the space, Colony Square will boast a total of 892,000 square feet of office space, more than 40,000 square feet of open community gathering space, and 143,000 square feet of retail space – including the new food hall concept Main & Main, which will occupy 28,000 square feet.
As Midtown’s first mixed-use development community, Colony Square will celebrate its 50th anniversary on July 4th, 2018. The timing of the anniversary comes into play as the first of three planned construction phases is projected to conclude exactly 50 years from the date of Colony Square’s original groundbreaking.
