iPic® Entertainment, creators and founders of iPic® Theaters and Tuck Hospitality Group Restaurants, announce the signing of their first Georgia lease in Midtown Atlanta. A nine-screen, 426-seat luxury iPic® theater, along with a 6,700-square-foot destination bar/restaurant is planned for a 2020 opening in North American Properties’ reimagined mixed-use destination, Colony Square.
“We have had our eye on the Atlanta market for five years now, and the Colony Square redevelopment project allowed us to launch the iPic brand experience into one of the top ten DMAs in the country. This market has consistently been heralded as one of the most walkable in the nation, making our ground-floor presence at Colony Square all the more impactful in delivering a quality entertainment, dining and experiential destination for arts and culture under one roof,” says Hamid Hashemi, President, and CEO of iPic® Entertainment.
iPic® Theaters will bring its revolutionary new theatrical escape to Colony Square in 2020. Centrally located at the corner of Peachtree and 14th Streets in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, Colony Square is undergoing a major redevelopment that transforms the mixed-use pioneer, originally built in 1968, into an icon of another kind: A foodie haven, shopping destination and sophisticated business, residential and cultural hotspot that, like all great city squares, is alive with street-level energy and vibrant, urban experiences. iPic® will be the entertainment anchor of this unique project and deliver a superior affordable experience to the thriving Midtown community.
Upon completion, the reimagined Colony Square will comprise approximately 260,000 square feet of retail space, 262 luxury residences, 940,000 square feet of office space and a 466-room hotel. The iPic® site will also feature a destination restaurant designed and operated by three-time James Beard Award-winning Chef Sherry Yard to be announced at a later date. A full-service bar will offer an exclusive menu of handcrafted cocktails, presented by award-winning mixologist and master sommelier Adam Seger.
“After five years of searching for its first Georgia location, we are thrilled iPic Theaters, along with its incredible restaurant concept, has chosen to call Colony Square home,” said David Weinert, partner and senior vice president of leasing at North American Properties. “Known for its luxury seating, farm-to-glass cocktails, chef-driven cuisine and ‘ninja-like’ servers, this is a movie-going experience unlike anything in Georgia. iPic perfectly aligns with our vision of bringing best-in-class, first-to-market concepts to the reimagined Colony Square, and we look forward to delivering this and more ‘retailtainment’ offerings that resonate with our community and enhance Midtown’s Living Room.”
The new iPic® at Colony Square will bring a luxurious theatrical escape with nine auditoriums and seating between 40 and 60 in an intimate setting. In addition to viewing the latest Hollywood blockbusters, members and guests will be able to enjoy alternative content such as live shows including magic, comedy, along with gaming competitions and other iPic experiential ticketed events. Guests will enjoy their experience in ultimate style in the comfort of iPic’s patent-pending Premium Plus fully reclining leather seating Pods that include courtesy personal pillows and blankets. At the touch of a button, guests can summon ninja-like servers to deliver a signature dine-in-the-dark menu by acclaimed three-time James Beard award-winning Chef Sherry Yard in addition to a farm to glass beverage menu by iPic Master Bartender and Advanced Sommelier Adam Seger. iPic®’s auditoriums will be equipped with 4K digital cinema technology and all seats may be reserved ahead of time on iPic’s proprietary reservation system by visiting iPic.com or downloading the iPic app.
