North American Properties to Break Ground on Food Hall at Colony Square in Atlanta’s Midtown District
ATLANTA — North American Properties (NAP) has unveiled plans to develop a 28,000-square-foot food hall at Colony Square, a mixed-use destination at the corner of 14th and Peachtree streets in Atlanta’s Midtown district. Dubbed Main & Main, the food hall will include indoor and outdoor dining space and a staging area designed for a variety of event programming. The area will host Colony Square’s more than 200 signature and seasonal events annually. Restaurant designer and architect David Thompson is leading the project’s design, and restaurateur Steve Palmer will be the food hall’s chef curator. Main & Main will feature approximately 12 to 15 culinary concepts, as well as complementary vendors such as flower, chocolate and pastry pop-ups and an incubator space to host nonprofits. In addition, the project will include The Grove, a green space outfitted with soft seating, Spanish steps and a beer garden, that will serve as the gateway to Main & Main. NAP will break ground on Main & Main this fall, with the first phase of development slated to open in 2018.
