SAVANNAH | Development News Thread

I figured I would start a development thread on Savannah,GA. There's a lot of development going on in the city and Savannah without a doubt has the most development going of any city in Georgia outside of Atlanta.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION
PLANT RIVERSIDE DISTRICT
This is the largest private project in the history of Savannah's National Historic Landmark District. The $280 million development will feature a 419 room JW Marriott Hotel spread across three separate themed buildings. It will also feature restaurants, retail space and convention space.

YES! Fantastic to see this, Savannah is one of my favorite cities in the south, and it's exciting to see all this new development that is so in-line with the historic character of the city.

Amazing rundown. Haven't been back to Savannah since my friend graduated from SCAD, but loved it the times I had the chance to visit. The city is only going to get better.

Nice thread so far!! I visited Savannah with my parents back in 87, I believe. Actually, we were basically passing through, but we did visit for a few hours. Looks to be a city on the move. It's nice to see some development going on in Georgia outside of Atlanta!!!

incredible summary detroitman!

i'm in love with the scale, quality, and scope of projects going on in savannah.

the riverfront project sounds particularly nice and hopefully serves as a catalyst for the improvement of north river street.

IMO, the west elm (hotel) project is a pretty solid representation of what is good for savannah. the scale fits, the materials should be high quality, and the building is modern while paying homage to savannah's character

The plans to demolish the old freight depot to make way for the "gateway" apartments is drawing the ire of residents and preservationists.

Quote:
However, the planned demolition is concerning to Historic Savannah Foundation President and CEO Daniel Carey, who said the loss of the building will remove an important part of Savannah’s history while also altering the context of the area. Carey questioned the developer’s description of the project as a “gateway” between the Historic District and the planned Canal District where the city is building a new arena and he called for the owner to creatively incorporate the terminal into the development.

Savannah really needs to clean up its zoning laws and passing the NEWZO can't come soon enough. IMO, the city will see increased density in areas north of Victory Drive and the city should be taking steps to prepare for that now.

Quote:
The former Catholic Diocese building is on the southeast corner of Liberty and East Broad, just outside the district and the cut-off point for density, lot coverage and parking exemptions adopted by the city in 2017 to encourage more residential development.

At the Savannah City Council meeting Jan. 3, Attorney Harold Yellin, representing Standard Southeast LLC, sought to amend the zoning ordinance to extend the exemptions to the property that the city agreed to sell in August for $5.9 million.
