Pinewood Forest (formerly ‘Forrest’) late last week released details and renderings for its 25-acre Village Square, expected to break ground soon and open in 2019.
Village Square will be the mixed-use development’s “heart of activity and action” with a boutique hotel, restaurants, independent retail shops and galleries, a collaborative office suite and the 60,000-square-foot Piedmont Wellness Center opening late 2019.
“We are building a vibrant town center that will serve as the pulse of the community and feature some of the best food in the South,” Rob Parker, President of Pinewood Forest, said in a prepared statement.
“There will be shops and restaurants all along the ground floor creating an incredible walkable experience. Everything here will be unique and make Pinewood a destination unlike any other.”
Located directly across the street from Pinewood Atlanta Studios, Village Square will provide dining, shopping, and entertainment for those working on the lot.
Pinewood Atlanta Studios is the “largest” purpose-built studio complex in North America, outside of L.A with an estimated 3,500 professionals currently come to work there every day.
This new, under construction development, will ultimately feature 1,300 residences, comprised of 600 detached residences, 100 townhomes, and 600 apartments/condos.
Approximately 50 homes ranging from $300,000 to $2 million are underway or recently completed with new residents that have moved in since December 2017.
Every home either fronts on or is located within one block of a park, and the community is the first residential community of its scale in the United States with every home utilizing both geothermal HVAC technology and 1-gigabit internet fiber.
Pinewood Forest has 15+ miles of paths that provide access to retail, offices, hotels, The Forest School, the performing arts center, and approximately 15 independent restaurants within a five-minute walk.
“Over the coming months we will begin sharing culinary announcements complemented by unique retail, artisans, and other Village Square amenities,” Bill Lynch, Project Director for Pinewood Forest, said in a prepared statement.
“Through these announcements, our story and vision will come alive and we’re so excited about creating a place unlike any other in Atlanta or the Southeast.”
