Moving in the Right Direction
There are multiple sites available and soon to be available in the Savannah area that feature ideal strategic locations for industries that seek to be in a fast growing region of the United States. Effingham County features sites ranging from a few acres to mega sites. We are developing nearly 4,500 acres in the Savannah market for short and long range industrial growth.
The Savannah market is home to and offers the fast growing Georgia Ports Authority, ideal connections via Interstate 95 North/South and Interstate 16 East/West, as well as the bustling Savannah International Airport, Gulfstream Aerospace and Fort Stewart Military Reservation.
Connectivity to rapidly growing markets and the major metropolitan areas of the southeast is a key feature of the strategic location. The Savannah area anchors the triangle between key growth markets in Miami, Atlanta and Charleston.
The Georgia Ports Authority’s Garden City Terminal offers the fastest growing container handling facility on the east and gulf coasts of the U.S. It is also the fourth largest port in the U.S.
Other essential market features are an excellent higher education system including Georgia Southern University, University of Georgia, Georgia Tech’s Savannah Campus, Armstrong Atlantic State University and other world class institutions, as well as major regional military bases including King’s Bay Naval Base, Fort Stewart Army Base, and Hunter Army Airfield. These are all factors adding to a highly skilled area workforce.
