Mercy Housing Southeast announced recently the commencement of its final phase of construction at Savannah Gardens, located on Savannah’s historic east side. More than 10 years ago, Mercy Housing Southeast teamed with Savannah’s Community Housing Services Agency, Inc. (CHSA) and the City of Savannah to redevelop a 44-acre site formerly known as Strathmore Estates. The sixth and final phase of development will begin immediately. In lieu of a traditional ground-breaking ceremony, Mercy Housing created a virtual tour of the community, including 3-D renderings of the new construction. View the tour here.
“Savannah Gardens is a perfect example of community revitalization in our City,” said Mayor Van Johnson. “This new neighborhood provides affordable and energy-efficient housing for hundreds of low-income residents – both renters and first-time homebuyers. I’m excited to see the City of Savannah’s partnership with Mercy Housing Southeast, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and the Community Housing Services Agency, Inc. entering its final phase.”
The construction of 85 affordable duplexes, townhomes, and apartments will be an addition to more than 400 units of family and senior housing already in the community.
Existing units in Savannah Gardens are currently available. The leasing office is located at 514 Pennsylvania Ave, Savannah, GA 31404.
