Residential options would include tiny homes and tree houses.
A creative new-urban development is planned in Fayetteville.
Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy and partners today announced details of a 234-acre master-planned residential and mixed-use project 24 miles from Downtown Atlanta.
Called Pinewood Forrest, the development is intended to be a community centered around "storytellers, the creative and the-creative-at-heart."
The project would be a "companion community" to Pinewood Studios, located just across the street. The film complex is considered to be one of the most technologically-advanced in North America.
“We’ve been very careful to envision a community that will attract a wide spectrum of people, that will inspire folks to live well, and to honor others. I believe this is the model for future generations,” said Cathy in a prepared statement.
The team behind the project includes project management by Pace Lynch Corp. and town planning by Lew Oliver of Whole Town Solutions.
Pinewood Forrest would include a culinary district, garden district, craft district and woodland district. The development's "village square" would to be within a five minute walk of each.
The residential component would consist of 1,300 units including single-family homes, micro-cottages (otherwise known as "tiny homes"), multi-family flats, townhomes and even tree houses.
A boutique hotel is also in the works as is 275,000 square feet of commercial office, street level retail and restaurants, which would all be located in the village square.
Over 15 miles of trails and pathways would meander through Pinewood Forrest along with 118 total acres of public green space - just a little over half of the site.
