About Colony Square
At the corner of 14th and Peachtree Streets sits Colony Square, the first-ever mixed-use development to rise in the Southeast. For more than 50 years, the iconic destination has anchored the Midtown Atlanta community and served as the heartbeat of the city. Owned and operated by North American Properties (NAP), the reimagined Colony Square brings the Art of Modern Life to Midtown and features nearly one million square feet of class A office; 160,000 square feet of best-in-class retail, restaurants and entertainment; a 20,000-square-foot food hall featuring an all-local lineup of culinary talent; 25,000 square feet of open-air greenspace; 262 luxury residences and a 466-room hotel. Since its inception in the early 1970s, Colony Square has brought an unmatched energy to the streets of Midtown, and now, the destination has once again re-emerged as the crown jewel of the vibrant district. The reimagined Colony Square is a foodie haven; shopping mecca; events destination; and a beautiful, amenity-rich and arts-infused place to gather with the community and soak up Midtown's vibe. Open, walkable, full of greenspace and transit friendly, The Square is alive with possibility.

ATLANTA (October 11, 2021) – An urban winter wonderland experience like no other in metro Atlanta is coming to Midtown’s Living Room this holiday season, announced North American Properties (NAP), marking the completion of the reimagined Colony Square at the corner of 14th and Peachtree Streets. From Friday, November 19 through Monday, January 17, the iconic mixed-use destination will present its larger-than-ever “Season on the Square,” a collection of festive community-driven activations for the public to relish, including ice-skating, a seasonal speakeasy, magic moments with Santa and its first-ever tree lighting ceremony.
“As our team approaches the end of its redevelopment journey at Colony Square, we’ve been reflecting on the tremendous grassroots community-building that has happened here over the last five years. The constant outpouring of support we’ve experienced has been truly humbling, and for that, we thank you, Atlanta,” said Tim Perry, NAP managing partner. “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate this significant milestone in our company’s history than with our closest friends, family and neighbors during the most wonderful time of the year.”
Kicking off the Season on the Square is the opening of the ice-skating rink. During the winter of 1973, Colony Square unveiled a unique office amenity, an indoor ice-skating rink known as the Colony Square Capades Chalet. The 8,000-square-foot rink sat within the formerly enclosed mall that connected the two original office towers (Buildings 100 and 400), which has since been replaced by The Plaza, a 10,000-square-foot open-air gathering space at the heart of the property. After much anticipation, the ice-skating rink will make its nostalgic return to Colony Square when it reopens in The Plaza this fall.
Further details about the ice-skating rink and the entire Season on the Square are below:
“Midtown Atlanta always shines bright during the holidays, and we’re so excited to add some new sparkle to the neighborhood this year,” said Lauren Ness, marketing manager at Colony Square. “Visions of twirling ice skaters, reindeer games and ornaments are already dancing through my head. We can’t wait to bring this new tradition to life at the corner of 14th and Peachtree Streets.”
