Welcome to Colony Square, reimagined.

In the 1960s, Jim Cushman had a vision for a mixed-use “micropolis” in Midtown Atlanta—the first of its kind in the Southeast. He assembled a pioneering design team, who put forth an exciting and unconventional plan for co-located residential, commercial, and recreational activity.

Colony Square was architecturally and culturally transformative from the start. The development struggled to compete with the Atlanta’s suburbs, however, and immediate commercial success eluded the original project team.
