A place for storytellers, the creative and the creative-at-heart, Pinewood Forest plans to implement a mixed-use blueprint that will unlock the possibility of a diverse, urban lifestyle. The 234-acre community adjacent to Pinewood Studios will include over 1,200 residences, 270,000 SF of office, restaurant and retail space and more than 100 acres of public greenspace. With phase one of residential construction already partially complete and the phase one of Town Center slated to be complete in late 2019, Pinewood Forest is already being referred to as the premier “live, create and play community” in the country.
Brought onto the project as prime landscape architect is Atlanta-based landscape architecture and planning firm, HGOR. Responsible for leading the design of the public spaces on site, the firm looks to capitalize on the opportunity by activating the spaces in between. With flexibility and engagement at the forefront of each design component, Pinewood Forest’s core is to be programmed in a way that involves heavy collaboration with local artists. Sculptural elements and both permanent and rotating exhibits will fill the streetscape and pedestrian corridors, driven by members of the community. Delivering the Owner’s vision through a collaborative and adaptable canvas will create a community tailored to the local character and culture of its brand.
Additional components are underway to define Pinewood Forest from its counterparts, including an arts walk, vendor kiosks, and beer garden. The core of the design, Central Plaza, is designed to be the hub of the community for artist markets, film screenings, performances, and even ice skating. The mixed-use development looks to blur the lines between work and leisure by imbuing flexible, creative community spaces that support a wide range of activities, act as a catalyst for social interaction and elevate the sense of community.
