Work is in full swing at 14th and Peachtree streets as North American Properties transforms the base of the Colony Square office towers, drawing commercial spaces nearer to passing pedestrians.
Crews have added two stories of structure, extending the building toward one of Midtown’s (and the Southeast’s) busiest intersections. It’s all in preparation for new retail offerings at what developers hope will be the neighborhood’s signature mixed-use center.
When complete, the new spaces will provide two-story retail options with what should be high visibility.
Meanwhile, at the northern edge of the site, demolition is wrapping up on a two-story concrete structure that formerly housed offices and restaurant space.
In its place, plans call for a new six-story building (see below, at left).
The glassy mid-rise, a dramatic aesthetic change from the heavy concrete of the current complex, will house retail and restaurants on the ground floor, as well as a FitLab Fitness Club and offices above.
Throughout the site, new development will bring many additions to the historic, million-square-foot development, including a Food Hall and iPic movie theater.
New retail space at the base of the 100 Building at 14th and Peachtree is expected to open this summer, marking the 50th anniversary of Colony Square’s original debut.
