Then maybe the city will build the fire/police station and put the boat back in operation.

Right on. Play golf. Hotel. Yes. All else kinda like Gillian's Island.

Some good updates in the 23 April agenda for the planning commission. A new mixed-use apartment building is coming to Bull St and new renderings of the redevelopment of the old Catholic Diocese complex on East Liberty. First up is the new apartment building at 1512 Bull St. It will consist of 81 units in a four story building, with 7,500 sf of ground floor retail space.

The city’s plan to sell some downtown properties and return them to the tax rolls made some progress Tuesday, when a potential buyer’s plans for one site just outside the Historic District was approved by the Metropolitan Planning Commission.

Standard Southeast LLC is planning to build a five-story apartment complex with commercial space at the site on the southeast corner of Liberty Street and East Broad Street, in addition to renovating the existing city-owned building located on the property.

The complex includes 206 apartments, which include studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. In addition, there will be 216 on-site parking spaces, with another 13 spaces provided offsite.

I feel like a lot of stuff these days has this look: the overhang decoration stuff they always put on the roof these days. I see it in other cities too. I guess it's a trend. Want to innovate, be like Perry Ln hotel. use new bricks, or if renovating reveal old bricks. Bricks age in a cool way. But the rooftop patios are a great idea, like Perry Ln - it would be cool to see more roof top bars!! And best of all, have trees and grass on the roof. One of them above has it and looks amazing. Imagine live oaks on roof tops, or other native trees. Pretty cool thought! I have seen this... in Vancouver the whole city is practically covered in giant firs, and it's pretty cool!

I was in Savannah on Friday and snapped some photos of ongoing projects. Eastern Wharf is really making some great progress. I also saw fencing up around the sites for Starland Village and the new SCAD dorms in Bingville, so I'm guessing those two projects may be beginning soon.

I honestly thought this project had fallen through, so I was glad to see it underway. It will certainly be a unique building. It will feature 6 apartments on the upper 3 floors and ground floor retail space.

wow great photos! The Kessler project (and all of his, really) is like the gold standard, really great work and I think it will be lucrative for his company and the community and make a cool atmosphere down there.

A developers plans for senior housing in Hudson Hill are being held up by the neighborhood association, while the plans for a mixed-income community similar to sustainable fellwood are moving forward. It's nice to see development occuring outside of the historic urban core.

Developers are increasingly eyeing areas outside downtown to meet the demand for housing throughout the city.

One neighborhood attracting attention lately is the Hudson Hill community, located west of the West Bay Street viaduct that leads into Savannah’s Historic District.



A development company, Cardinal Capital Management, has recently earned support from residents for one project in the neighborhood, while drawing community opposition against another.

The company’s plan to construct a four-story, 57-unit senior living complex with a one-story medical clinic has been held up after neighborhood residents spoke out against the project during the Savannah City Council meeting on April 11.

Great pictures - thanks for posting them. I was wondering what was going in at that 501 Montgomery site. I think it looks like a good addition.

It looks like plans for one of the four planned hotels on the east end of River St may be up in the air after the vote of the historic review board...
Quote:
A developer’s revised plan for an eight-story hotel on East River Street was voted down by the Savannah Historic District Board of Review on Wednesday about seven years after the project was first proposed.

The board’s vote against the height and mass petition came after members expressed concerns about the size of the proposed Hilton by North Point Hospitality.



As presented, the 41,000-square-foot building would span 223 feet along the Savannah River in the northeast corner of the Savannah Historic District.

“It looks like that structure overwhelms the site,” said board member Stan Houle.

There were also concerns that new ordinance standards passed since the hotel was first presented in 2012 do not apply to the project.
