Representatives from Shake Shack declined to comment on the Colony Square location when reached Wednesday by WNA.

Emails and calls to NAP from WNA were not immediately returned.

The New York City-based modern “roadside” burger stand known for its 100 percent all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and griddled flat-top dogs, frozen custard, crinkle-cut fries and more first entered the Atlanta market in 2014 with the opening of The Shops Buckhead Atlanta location.

Outposts in Perimeter Mall, in Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and in Old Fourth Ward off the Beltline have since followed.

When the overhaul is complete at Colony Square, Shake Shack will join 5Church Atlanta, Establishment, and the recently re-opened Moe’s Southwest Grill among other dining choices.
