NEW DESIGN VIDEO: 50 YEARS of COLONY SQUARE
The design of the new open-air
Colony Square has finally been released.
Mark Toro, North American Managing Partner, said
“On July 4, 2018, the 50th anniversary of Colony Square’s groundbreaking, we will celebrate the grand opening of the reimagined Colony Square. We will engage with the city, with the street and with pedestrians, and it will fundamentally change the experience of living and working in Midtown Atlanta.”
New York-based architects Beyer Blinder Belle with Atlanta’s Lord Aeck Sargent are the architects.
Having enjoyed living here in the mid 80’s-early 90’s, I am thrilled to present to you… the preliminary design fly-through of the Reimagined Colony Square:
Colony Square History:
Between 1969 and 1975, Colony Square became the first mixed-use development in the southeast– providing condos, a Fairmont Hotel, retail mall, and two office towers. It was designed by Jova/Daniels/Busbee in the modernist style. The design of the condominiums has a direct relationship to designs by architectural giant LeCorbusier– especially Unité d’habitation in Marseille, France.
