Pinewood Forest: Luxurious Haven
Directly adjacent to Pinewood Atlanta Studios—the second-largest film studio in the U.S.—and 15 minutes from the airport, the town of Pinewood Forest is coming to life. The 235-acre master-planned community is a haven for storytellers and creatives and a contemporary concept in walkable living.
Homes in the purpose-built, New Urbanist community offer residents a wide variety of choices, from microhomes and multifamily lofts to midsized homes perfect for growing families and estates priced in the millions. The community is home to actors and stunt doubles, who live next door to doctors, teachers, and business owners. Homes run on geothermal energy, which reduces monthly bills by up to 70 percent, and are pre-wired for electric car charging stations.
The community’s amenities include the Piedmont Wellness Center; the Forest School (K-12); Solea, a resort-style pool; a dog park; and 15 miles of nature trails.
Numerous restaurants and retail establishments will open in Pinewood Forest’s Town Center, a 25-acre haven for foodies and shoppers alike. Braise, Hop City + Barleygarden, Honeysuckle Gelato, Apple Butter Bakery, Native Beauty Bar, and the Skin Society are all set to open this year. A boutique hotel and eight-screen movie theater will also break ground later this year.
