The new Savannah Gardens community is located on land that once housed very proud Americans who supported America’s World War II effort building Liberty Ships. These ships carried supplies across the Atlantic and Pacific in support of our troops.
Following the war, the site continued to be the home of hard working Savannah residents. As the property aged, the school board purchased half the 90 acre site in the 1990s to construct a new, state of the art, Savannah High School.
Then, in 2007 the remaining 44 acre site was purchased by its current owner. After a yearlong planning process, the new owner implemented a plan to demolish the antiquated World War II housing, install new infrastructure and parks, and build new housing for both purchase and rent.
The new design follows new urbanism, neo-traditional, and EarthCraft (“green”) design principals—making Savannah Gardens one of Savannah’s highest quality, if not highest quality, people oriented communities for the next generation of hard working and proud Savannah citizens.
