Place Update – August 2016
As one of the more rural counties in the Metro Atlanta area, Fayette County has unique livability offerings.  Fayetteville, founded in 1823 offers historic charm with modern amenities such as one of the best hospitals in the nation.  Peachtree City, with its villages and multiuse path system, is like no other place for family and connectivity.  Up-and-coming Tyrone has been named the happiest town in Georgia!  Brooks and Woolsey offer small-town living at its finest.
Last week, Dan Cathy and business partners unveiled initial plans for Pinewood Forrest, a mixed-use development across the street from Pinewood Atlanta Studios.  The project is expected to have a significant investment on 230 acres.  When built out, the development is expected to have 1,300 residences, hotels, retail, office and healthcare facilities.
Another feature of the development is a proposed performing arts center.  Cathy refers to the entire development as “the ultimate sandbox for a creative artist.”
