The grand overhaul of Midtown’s original mixed-use development—Colony Square—will soon kick into high gear with the demolition of a small building on the high-profile site.
According to a press release by developer North American Properties, Building 500 will be brought down during a ceremony Oct. 10, featuring speeches, food, drinks, and a wrecking ball.
Plans are shaping up for the revitalization of the nearly 1-million-square-foot office development, long anchored by an indoor food court.
The first phase of construction will bring street-level retail and restaurants to the base of Building 100, fronting Peachtree Street. Developers say the new spaces will be opened on the 50th anniversary of the complex’s original unveiling: July 4, 2018.
The second phase, slated for delivery in March 2019, will bring new retail to the base of Building 400, located toward 15th Street.
Earlier this month it was revealed thatat Colony Square is jumping on the food hall bandwagon with plans for Main & Main—an eatery meets performance venue at the corner of 14th and Peachtree streets.
That component, along with a luxury movie theater, new office spaces, and “a curated collection of fitness concepts,” is slated to open Nov. 21, 2019.
