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, 40,000 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.
