A budding mega-development south of Atlanta will soon debut a rooftop hangout that promises views across what’s beginning to resemble a real city, officials say.
In Fayetteville, the 235-acre Pinewood Forest development by Pace Lynch is steadily coming to life, and this spring could deliver a major rooftop attraction for residents and out-of-towners.
Today, the four-story Two-Ten office and retail structure is under construction, comprised largely of reclaimed bricks from the mid-1800s.
In coming weeks, a rooftop bar and restaurant wrap construction, a Pinewood Forest representative told Curbed Atlanta this week.
Later this year, the 52,824-square-foot building will be ready for additional retail and office tenants.
The 2,500-square-foot rooftop spot is expected to overlook the heart of Pinewood Forest, which would ultimately feature green space and the neighborhood’s Central Plaza.
Below that, the building would house creative loft and medical office space, as well as more ground-floor restaurant and retail offerings.
Last month, elsewhere on the site, crews broke ground on a nine-screen cinema that project officials hope will draw hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
And like the upcoming retail and office building, the cinema is expected to offer an open-air rooftop destination, where patrons can watch movies under the stars.
Pinewood Forest is eventually slated to include 700 new homes, 600 apartments, 300 hotel rooms, and some 270,000 square feet of commercial space with restaurants and retail.
Some of the apartments are under construction now and on track to be tenant-ready later this year, the Pinewood Forest spokesman said.
Additionally, a new 60,000-square-foot Piedmont Wellness Center at the property opened in November.
Next door to Pinewood Forest, the production facilities at Pinewood Studios are poised to expand, too.
This story was updated to indicate that the new commercial building won’t open until later this year.
