Savannah’s Westside is entering a new era with the redevelopment of Sustainable Fellwood. A groundbreaking ceremony was held on Tuesday, September 16, 2008, for the mixed-use, mixed income redevelopment which will offer “green” affordable housing. Residents as well as the environment will benefit from the energy efficient heating and air conditioning units and water heaters.
The new development at the 27- acre site serves as a principal component of the City of Savannah’s Westside Development Revitalization Plan. Sustainable Fellwood replaces Fellwood Homes, the first public housing project in Savannah.
Sustainable Fellwood is designed to be a walkable, enjoyable community that preserves as many of the mature trees as possible, with new trees planted as well. The redevelopment is widely considered a national showcase for environmentally responsible community planning.
Savannah area high school and college students have a chance to put their stamp on this new community by entering the Sustainable Fellwood logo contest.
