About 30 miles south of downtown Atlanta, an entirely new Georgia town tied to the Peach State’s thriving TV and film industry broke ground in 2017.
This week, Town at Trilith’s creators are popping bubbly over a sales milestone: The closing of the Fayetteville community’s 200th house.
Designed to recall a European Village by town planner Lew Oliver, whose work across metro Atlanta spans from Serenbe to Cumming, the Town at Trilith (formerly Pinewood Forest) has always been envisioned as a 235-acre, mixed-use urbanist hub in the sticks, with more walkability and intentional interaction between neighbors than a typical subdivision.
Across the street, the 1,000-acre Trilith Studios—where blockbusters such as Avengers: Endgame and Ant-Man were made—has grown to become the second largest production studio in North America.
“Our entire community was built to capture the essence of storytelling and deliver an inspirational way of living,” said Rob Parker, Trilith president, in an announcement this week. “The sale of our 200th home motivates us to continue building.”
So far, living options at Trilith have ranged from micro cottages to million-dollar estates. Prices in the town’s second phase now span between a half-million dollars to more than $2 million.
The least expensive plan currently listed, the 1,342-square-foot Holt Cottage, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms for $519,900.
On the flipside, the priciest listing today, the Darby Estate, costs $1.65 million for four bedrooms, five and a ½ bathrooms, with a 444-square-foot guest house/studio included.
Beyond the residential section, a K-12 school and Piedmont Wellness Center have opened, joining food and drink options Amici Italian Café (opened last week), Barleygarden Kitchen and Craft Bar, Honeysuckle Gelato, and Hop City.
A food hall, boutique hotel, nine-screen luxury cinema, and eight more shops and eateries are currently in the pipeline.
