People get first look at One West Victory

Posted: Updated:

On Friday night, people got a first look at a property that could have a big impact on midtown Savannah.

The property, One West Victory, is a development geared toward college students, almost like a private residence hall.

The apartments rent not by the unit, but by the bedroom.

The development also has a community draw, a new restaurant by award winning chef Hugh Acheson, already named one of Eater Magazine's most anticipated restaurants of 2014.

Developers said the idea is to spur economic growth in the neighborhood.

"The rising tide raises all ships, and we really want to be part of communities and not just come in and do and get out, but to really make the time to meet the neighbors and know the neighbors and invest in the neighborhoods, so that everyone has a chance to benefit," said Jamestown Properties' Thomas Fowlkes.

The restaurant, named Florence, opens early next month. The apartments are renting now for fall move-in.
