The Metropolitan Planning Commission on Tuesday approved the master plan for Sustainable Fellwood, the redevelopment of Fellwood Homes.
Fellwood homes opened in 1940 on West Bay Street as the first public housing complex operated by the Housing Authority of Savannah.
It is now being redeveloped into an environmentally friendly, mixed-income community.
The development will be finished in phases and will include single- and multi-family homes and apartments, commercial and retail space.
The city of Savannah has approved an enterprise zone that will give temporary property tax abatements to keep rents low and attract businesses.
The first phase could be completed by the middle of 2009.
