Pinewood Forest’s 235 acres revolves around placemaking for a diversity of people, sustainable integrity, and durable, long-lasting design-build success. While much of Fayette County is rural, Pinewood Forest is developing into a New Urbanist world of its own, designated affectionately as a place for creatives to thrive. The design approach focuses on supporting a wide variety of beliefs, family makeups, cultures, careers, and ethnicities. The majority of lot sizes are 30 x 60 ft and 40 x 80 ft.
Buildings have advanced insulated envelopes and some use solar energy. Pervious materials permeate the landscape for a less heat-intensive environment and recharging groundwater. Various socio-economic groups can reside harmoniously side by side. All residential for-sale product is on geothermal energy. The housing includes family compounds that share courtyards, units over garages, townhouses, treehouses, and micro-units, half of which front green streets. Each unit shares intentionally curated views and efficient pedestrian paths for a healthy, eco-friendly oasis where 51 percent of the greenery was saved.
