The Hunt Companies

Hitch Village Phase I

Savannah, GA

Lord Aeck Sargent has provided master planning and architectural design services for the first phase of the Affordable housing redevelopment of a 20-acre site just east of Savannah’s famous historic district.

Working with Hunt Companies, the master developer for the Housing Authority of Savannah, LAS has designed 72 units of housing across four buildings and a standalone community building. The project is being constructed with funding from low-income housing tax credits. These apartments will replace outdated post-war subsidized housing that once occupied the site with a mixed income, family oriented community.

Collaborating with The Historic Savannah Foundation and the Metropolitan Planning Commission, the site plan and architectural character will serve as a model for the future redevelopment of the area in keeping with the historic charm the city is famous for. The project will be certified under EarthCraft Multifamily. The entire redevelopment of Hitch Village is being certified with LEED for Neighborhood Development.

Construction of the 120,000 sf community began in Summer 2015.
