Historic downtown is central and about 2.5 mi.². The area features old Victorian homes, park like squares and unique architecture. This is a great neighborhood for up-and-comers, professionals, artists, students and service industry professionals. It’s also a great place for a vacation or a second home and it provides easy walking to numerous shops, restaurants, boutiques and entertainment in downtown.
When located at the hub of Savannah’s Historic District, at precisely Drayton Tower, residents enjoy uptown living in the heart of downtown Savannah, which is the epicenter of activity. This location of perfection places residents just steps away from a catwalk of high-end shops, local boutiques, music venues, art galleries and an original blend of quaint cafes and world renowned restaurants. Setting the area apart as a modern icon amongst the neoclassical structures that have traditionally defined Savannah’s facade is the avant-garde architecture of Drayton Tower. Living here means experiencing something bigger than you. It means being part of a progressive movement towards cultural refinement.
Southeast and Historic downtown are both great options for those who love to walk. Along Bluff Drive in the southeast area is the neighborhood of the Isle of Hope. This is a riverfront community with good schools, a pedestrian-friendly environment and a good variety of renters and homeowners. If you’ve been looking for a waterfront community, you’ll love it here. There’s no commercial development except for the Marina. To find markets and restaurants, you’ll have to travel for at least three miles.
