In 2018, Colony Square reached its 50th anniversary. To celebrate, we had an idea to introduce a new series: ’People of Colony Square’—focused on people who have lived, worked and played on The Square and share their stories, their favorite memories of Midtown, what it was like back then and what they look forward to seeing as we transform the South’s first mixed-use development into Midtown Atlanta’s Living Room.

Julia Emmons

In 1985, I tossed my tenured Emory professorship aside and became the Executive Director of the Atlanta Track Club and, as such, also Director of the then 25,000-runner Peachtree Road Race. This was a career move that still has close friends shaking their heads.

Stephan Drescher, Jr.

"I am really looking forward to seeing how Colony Square will continue to progress, especially now that the old Mall Level is open air. It will be a place for people to enjoy; not just on their breaks during business hours, but at night and on the weekends as well."

Candace Ledbetter

"What I am most excited about with all the upgrades is the iPic Theater! Because I do so many film screening events, Colony Square can now be the perfect place host them; especially, since I’ll only have to take an elevator ride down to the venue! I am also looking forward to the new restaurants. Seeing promotional signs of what’s to come, the mockups of The Plaza, and what the experience will be like - all of it is just incredible!"

Elizabeth Mosley and Andrew Bairstow

“We wanted to move here because of the access to a pedestrian lifestyle which has only improved through time and the development in town. It brought us together and everything is in walking distance.”
