One West Victory is a mixed-use development in the emerging Starland District of Savannah, Georgia. Jamestown Properties, an acquisition and management company based in Atlanta, invests $25 million dollars in 1.74-acre site where the historic Savannah Ice Company once stood.
The project salvages two late 19th century buildings and transforms the property into dormitory housing for 350 students, a restaurant and a four-level precast parking deck. A residential amenity building also on the grounds features a fitness center, leasing office, study hall and student lounge. The four-story housing complex is LEED Gold certified and consists of 114 apartments with one- to four-bedroom luxury units and full kitchens.
The sustainable project incorporates high-performance windows, energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems, and a substantial amount of reclaimed and regionally sourced materials. The team meticulously preserves the masonry work, heart of pine floors and structural beams to repurpose them within the existing structures. The entire project is a tribute to the rich traditions within the community and an investment in its potential future.
