Pinewood Forest Comes Alive In 2020 With Residential, Retail, and Office Openings Starting In March

Majority of the Fayetteville mixed-use will be operating by October.

Pinewood Forest, the 235-acre residential and mixed-use development adjacent Pinewood Atlanta Studios, has narrowed down dates for its 2020 Town Center tenant openings, following the debut of Piedmont Wellness Center, which opened in October 2019.

Up next, residents will begin move-ins during the month of March to the Premiere Lofts, which, so far, features 263 apartments surrounding interior courtyard parking, with three levels of residential units above retail and restaurant spaces along the ground level.

The Two-Ten office building, featuring dining and entertainment spaces both on the first floor and on the rooftop, is projected to open in April 2020, adjacent to the wellness center.

Late-summer 2020 will bring The Skin Society and Native Beauty Bar to the “open” column.

On the northside of Town Center will be the nine-screen movie cinema, operated by Spotlight Theatres, projected to open late-2020 or early-2021.

“By October, the majority of our Town Center will be built and open, which means 263 apartments out 600 total will be open and full,” Rob Parker, president of Pinewood Forest, shared with What Now Atlanta during a phone interview.

“Also in this first phase, the first 30,000 square feet of retail and 40,000 square feet of office space will be up and operational.”

A bevy of restaurants are slated to open this year at Pinewood as well, confirmed Parker.

Hop City and Barleygarden are expected to open by Memorial Day with Honeysuckle Gelato and Apple Butter Bakery in queue directly after.

Braise, a new concept from Tanya Jimenez and Michael Le and chefs behind Mushi Ni in We Suki Suki and now Little Trouble on the Westside have updated their opening projection to early Q1 2021.

No opening date has been provided for Pancake Social’s Café + Coffee House, the first location outside of the Ponce City Market flagship.

“We couldn’t be more excited to see our Town Center come to light in 2020,” Parker said.

“The restaurants, retail shops, coworking spaces, and luxury cinema will add great vibrancy to the street with lots more to come. By the end of the year, there will be over a thousand people living, playing and working at Pinewood Forest.”
