City and partners set to break ground on Dundee Cottages
SAVANNAH (Nov. 1) –The City of Savannah will break ground on the Dundee Cottages project Thursday, Nov. 3, at 10 a.m. at the intersection of Dundee and Aberdeen St.
This project will develop vacant City land to construct 40 new cottages for permanent supportive housing and a residential service building for persons experiencing homelessness.
Additionally, approved funding will support the development of 12 tiny new homes for veterans at the Cove at Dundee by the Chatham Savannah Authority for the Homeless.
Our partners for this project include the Land Bank Authority, Community Housing Services Agency (CHSA), CHSA Development, and the Chatham Savannah Authority for the Homeless.
Collectively, we anticipate that completing Dundee Cottages and the Cove at Dundee will allow at least 86 persons experiencing homelessness to have quality housing and necessary supportive services to help propel them forward in their lives.
The development of the 52 dwellings, the resident services building, and associated infrastructure represents an investment of about $6.5 million, consistent with the City Council's goals and the Housing Savannah Action Plan.
