The proposed Starland Village project comprises the mixed-use redevelopment of two and a half city blocks in Savannah’s Mid-City District, incorporating commercial, housing, event space, and parking.
The commercial and event spaces are centered around the adaptive reuse of a historic church building from the 1930s. The church is proposed to be converted to a multipurpose event space that will accommodate various assembly uses in the old sanctuary, as well as a basement-level tavern. An adjacent, three-story brick building (which previously served as a school building and offices) will undergo a full interior renovation and includes the addition of a fourth-floor penthouse level, to house several office and retail uses.
Two new construction multifamily buildings, one 59-unit and the other 31-unit, are proposed at the north and south ends of the project area. While the structures are larger in scale than the surrounding neighborhood, the mass of the buildings is broken down in material and composition to help relate the scale to the surrounding neighborhood.
