POOLER, Georgia – Recently named Community of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Greater Savannah and as one of the Top 100 Masterplans in the U.S. by Ideal Living magazine, Savannah Quarters® has taken its place among the most desirable new-home communities in the Southeast. Located in Pooler, the fastest growing city in Georgia, the community is attracting an array of homebuyers drawn not only to its beautiful homes and outstanding amenities, but also to the charm of Savannah, which was included on the Time magazine list of the World’s Great Places for 2021. All of this comes with the benefits of living in Georgia, which has been recognized in a Bankrate study as the best state in the country to retire.

For its study, Bankrate looked at five categories: affordability, wellness, culture, weather and crime. Georgia came in at number one for retirees based on its score in all of these areas. A similar report released by personal finance website SmartAsset in February named Savannah among the top 10 cities attracting Americans aged 60 and older.

“With low taxes, great weather, attainably priced homes and overall quality of life, Georgia has it all,” said Gerrit Albert, President of Savannah Quarters. “We’re extremely pleased to be welcoming new residents from up and down the east coast to Savannah Quarters where we offer the best in modern Savannah living and homes that fit a variety of lifestyles from young families to those enjoying retirement.”

To coincide with Pooler’s growth, plans have been announced for the city’s first Costco store. Expected to open in spring 2022, the new warehouse-shopping venue will be built on the south end of Pooler Parkway near the intersection at I-16. It has also been announced that Amazon will expand its presence in Georgia with a new fulfillment center planned in Savannah. The facility will feature innovative Amazon robotics technology and create 1,000 full-time jobs. It is expected to open in 2022.

Savannah Quarters has partnered with some of the area’s best builders to create a wide variety of new-home neighborhoods built with quality and style. From maintenance-free townhomes and ranch designs to family-friendly, single-family residences, the homes reflect the southern elegance found throughout the Savannah region. Prices start in the mid $300,000s in the gated Westbrook neighborhood and in the high $200,000s within Easthaven at Savannah Quarters.

Savannah Quarters is located 12 miles west of the Savannah city center in Pooler. In addition to the residential collections, the 2,600-acre masterplan community offers charm, relaxation, beauty and recreation, including dog park for family pets. Westbrook residents have access to the Club at Savannah Quarters featuring resort-style amenities such as fitness, tennis, swimming and a stunning clubhouse as well as the 18-hole Greg Norman Signature Golf Course.

Easthaven residents have the option to join The Club at Savannah Quarters. Future plans include new residences and new adventures for every generation. To schedule a tour or for more information, please call 912.450.2300 or Contact Us.
