June 29, 2020 - Preserve Communities recently oversaw the donation of 915 acres of property to the City of Savannah to provide public access for recreational use of pristine greenspace. Plans for the land include the introduction of a new 75-acre active park area with a sports complex and 840 acres of pedestrian trails and preservation of active outdoor space.
This land is part of the New Hampstead master-planned community being developed by Preserve Communities. Park improvements on the donated land are scheduled to commence within the next few years, providing residents of New Hampstead, the City of Savannah, Chatham County and the entire region public access for recreational use.
“We believe thoughtful development takes into account both the essence of the land and the desires of the community,” said Jack Fisher, CEO and founder of Preserve Communities. “The introduction of New Hampstead paired with the land donation to enhance the well-being of the community is reflective of our core value to establish developments that blend seamlessly with their individual setting and the community culture.”
"I am so excited to see this community taking shape in the fabulous fifth district," said Dr. Estella Shabazz, Mayor Pro Tem. "This recreational area will give children, families and friends a safe place to have fun and get some exercise. I'm looking forward to seeing this plan come to life."
The development of Preserve Communities’ purposefully crafted master-planned 3,300-acre community, New Hampstead, boasts a mixed-use vision, including a wide range of residential and commercial offerings. Designed around a core “Village Center,” New Hampstead offers a complement of premier living, exceptional shopping, dining and social, and a multitude of active recreation for all homebuyers. In addition to the wide array of residential amenities and commercial offerings, New Hampstead will also be home to a new K-8 school that is already under construction, as well as the existing New Hampstead High School.
“We approach every new community with a mindset of property preservation, creating a unique quality of life for our residents and long-term protection of real estate value,” said Jeff Coggin, vice president of Preserve Communities overseeing Master Developer properties. “Conveniently located within the City of Savannah’s most active growth corridor combined with exceptional comprehensive planning, we are confident New Hampstead will serve as a tremendous asset for the City, and a widely popular and prominent neighborhood address.”
“Community benefits are a major focus for our administration,” shared Mayor Van R. Johnson, II. “Projects like these help us to grow our city in the right way – making sure newly created neighborhoods within Savannah have the appropriate amenities to sustain them from the start.”
The community is slated for a 15-year development; however, construction has already begun. Homes are available now, with several new communities to be announced in 2020 with prices points from $250,000 to $750,000.
