Pinewood Forrest Hosts Casting Call to Scout New Chefs and Restaurant Concepts

Bring your concept to life in the experiential community designed for creatives and artisans

Pinewood Forrest, a new, innovative urban community in Fayetteville, Georgia, has initiated a search for restaurant concepts and chefs to set up shop in the community’s experiential Village Square.

Envisioned as a community for storytellers, artisans and creatives, Pinewood Forrest spans 234 acres adjacent to Pinewood Atlanta Studios, the biggest purpose-built studio complex in the U.S. outside of Los Angeles. Once complete, Pinewood Forrest will be home to 3,000 residents. The sustainably-designed development will include 600 single-family residences, 100 townhomes, 600 multi-family flats and two hotel concepts connected by 15 miles of walkable pathways.

At the heart of Pinewood Forrest is Village Square, a retail district comprised of nearly 93,000 square feet of curated retail, wellness and restaurant space. Situated around 3 acres of multifunctional greenspace, Village Square will be activated with festivals, events and gathering areas that fuse public spaces, specialty retail and workspace together. Village Square is immediately accessible to the nearly 3,500 professionals that visit Pinewood Atlanta Studios every day.

Atlanta-based Oakhurst Realty Partners will oversee retail leasing as the commercial real estate partners for Pinewood Forrest, led by Managing Partner B. Fisher Paty and Vice President Todd Semrau. Semrau and Paty are exploring a wide range of distinctive entertainment and retail ideas for Village Square, including an incubator space, wellness concepts and entrepreneurial live/work gallery space for artisans.

“Our thesis is to create a village for creatives and storytellers. We are building an environment that removes obstacles and allows the creative class to thrive. As such, we are looking for highly differentiated retail concepts to call Pinewood Forrest home,” said Paty.

Construction is currently underway at Pinewood Forrest. Groundbreaking for the first phase of single-family residences occurred in April 2017. The first homes at Pinewood Forrest will be delivered and occupied by year-end.

“We are seeking authentic, chef-driven concepts looking to take the next step in an experiential and supportive community,” added Semrau. “We are excited about the progress underway at Pinewood Forrest and look forward to securing the retail concepts that will bring our community to life.”
