A New Kind of Town
What an incredible year it has been for the teams at Pinewood Forest and Pinewood Atlanta Studios. While our colleagues at the studio have been busy setting the stage for fabulous storytelling, the Pinewood Forest team has been designing and building a truly remarkable community. Inspired by our Chief Visionary Dan T. Cathy, our designers, architects, and builders are delivering on the challenge to build a town like no other. Leveraging some of the world’s best practices in urban design, 40 homes are already rising-up from the red Georgia clay.
Given our adjacency to the 2nd largest, purpose-built movie studio in North America, our new town is attracting the attention of both current and future generations of creators and innovators. While everyone is welcome at Pinewood Forest, the response we are receiving from young artists, writers, makers and other creatives is especially encouraging. Feedback from our early buyers suggests they are particularly attracted to the promise of a healthy lifestyle where they can live, work and play with people who share their passion for creating.
In addition to the homes that are already under construction, it has been exciting to see the parks, green spaces and play areas come to life. While winter is a time for our landscape to sleep, our crews are getting very little sleep of their own as they prepare for the spring housing crush. Visitors to our Experience Center are being treated to a no-pressure sales and design process that includes the ability to envision their new home in virtual reality. Embracing our buyers as family members, and treating them with love and respect has resulted in some beautiful relationships already forming in our new community.
With a great foundation poured this past year, 2018 promises to be a breakthrough year for Pinewood Forest. Following is a sampling of some of the great things to come.
- Piedmont Wellness Center groundbreaking (60,000SF)
- Multi-Family Building One groundbreaking (48 units)
- The Forest School, an Acton Academy, opening in the Fall of 2018
- Green Spaces including Central Park, The Great Lawn, Triangle Park and more
- Woodland Trail completed throughout the town (5K)
- Hotel, office, and first retail spaces launched
