Savannah’s new riverfront destination.
It’s impossible to imagine Savannah without our beloved river. The heart and soul of our community for generations. It’s given us commerce. Shaped our culture. Defined our character. And today, we’re proud to be creating something entirely new and special on the river’s edge. A warm, welcoming and walkable 54-acre gathering place with community parks and abundant greenspace. Wonderfully curated shops and restaurants. Modern office spaces. Luxury hotel rooms. Beautiful riverfront residences – a first for the city. All perfectly designed to reflect our proud architectural and cultural heritage. To be as soulful, authentic, vibrant and uniquely Savannah as possible. And to seamlessly connect with and complement everything we love about the Historic District. We’re calling it Eastern Wharf, an homage to the location’s rich industrial past. We think it says some truly great things about our future.
In the early 1800s, the area commonly known as the Eastern Wharves District was a thriving hub of industry. Home to businesses such as A.N. Millers Foundry, Hydraulic Cotton Press Company and the Bullock and Winton Steam Saw Mill., the area saw decades of prosperity that played a key role in the state’s economic growth. And while the wharves eventually gave way to industrial progress, the legacy remains. Today, Eastern Wharf promises to once again be a hotbed for activity along the water’s edge. Historically grounded. Geographically descriptive. Simple and unadorned. Yet full of nostalgia that is so uniquely Savannah. It’s an inspired name we can all embrace.
You’ll be tempted to park your car and never leave. Because when it comes to location, nothing in Savannah has more to offer. Visitors and locals alike will love the vibrant walkable environment and veritable kaleidoscope of choices. Boutique shopping and culinary delights. Places to live, work and play to your heart’s content. Wide open spaces and venues for coming together as a community. It’s all here and more, set within a gorgeous waterfront cityscape that both embraces Savannah’s proud past – and heralds a highly promising future.
