The Colony Redevelopment
As part of long-term strategic planning for this property we've owned since 1976, we have rezoned the site for a mix of up to 990 new multi-family residences, up to 225 hotel rooms, up to 300,000 SF of retail, and up to 250,000 SF of office. This mix of uses allows residents to have a place to live within walking distance of their workplace and convenient shopping at The Colony, and around the SouthPark area.
The higher density buildings and commercial component will be concentrated along Sharon and Colony Roads. The north side of the site towards Roxborough will see the lower-density residential buildings developed in three phases. For more information, visit our FAQ page.
Additional residential units will be evaluated in phases. We envision a redevelopment of this scale would take place over a period of 5-6 years.

Led by industry veteran Tim Hose (at the company since 1983 and an owner), they are a closely-held business and have owned and operated The Colony since 1976. Synco led the rezoning. In fact, Tim Hose stated he intends to live in The Colony in the future, which takes long-term ownership and stewardship of the land to a new level.
