Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

The Starland Village, a $40 million lifestyle-driven community located on a two-block stretch along historic Bull Street in Savannah, Georgia’s Starland District is nearing its highly-anticipated groundbreaking this summer.

For nearly two decades, the Starland District has experienced a steady and purposeful transformation covering a 60+ block revitalization in one of Savannah’s oldest neighborhoods. Today, the emerging arts and commercial corridor has garnered widespread attention from The New York Times to a plethora of media networks covering the exciting and major investment in the area.

Created by Foram Group, a third-generation real estate development firm, The Starland Village was thoughtfully designed to meld into the existing fabric of the neighborhood combined with modern, urban design elements. The result is an approachable, community-driven combination of mixed uses including cafes/restaurants, artist studios, historic and repurposed events venue, retail, office, residences, and Savannah’s first automated parking garage.

With inspiration drawing upon Savannah’s storied history, The Starland Village will soon be a top destination in the famous southern city for locals and tourists alike (Note: In 2017, Savannah set a new record in overall numbers of visitors to the city increasing from 13.9 million to 14.1 million contributing nearly $3 billion in visitor spending throughout the year).

The overall project layout includes three main buildings:


The Starland Village will feature 91 multi-family residences including studio, one and two-bedroom units, off-street parking, a fitness center, onsite bike valet, and neighboring restaurants and retail shops.


The Neighborhood will include creative office space designed to inspire with exposed ceilings, polished concrete floors, inviting lobby and generous office spaces available to accommodate small-to-midsize companies seeking longer term leases in Starland’s thriving commercial corridor.


The Wesley will be home to a dedicated music and entertainment venue, drawing up to 900 guests for larger events, and offering onsite retail/restaurants incredible exposure and foot traffic.
