"The property also includes a parking lot behind the church that borders Whitaker Street, which they originally planned to use to house the residential component of the project, but after working with the Metropolitan Planning Commission and assessing the height and density those plans changed, too. “It just came down to the standpoint where it wasn’t going to be accepted and we couldn’t do it in a creative way that wouldn’t hinder Whitaker and get the units that we needed, so we decided to scrap it,” he said. Around this time the City of Savannah property across 38th Street to the north was put up for sale and the group decided to submit their bid of $687,000 to the city, which was accepted last fall."
