- The Landings, Savannah’s residential community on Skidaway Island, was recently singled-out and featured in both the Fall and Winter editions of Ideal Living Magazine
Editor, Dave Robertson, said they chose the community for a two part feature because many home buyers today are concerned about the financial stability of planned communities in the face of so much default resulting from the real estate downturn. “The well-run Homeowner’s Association, The Landings Association (TLA), and the TLA-owned real estate company at the Landings makes it unique,” Robertson said, “There are not many communities with such a broad based amenity offering like The Landings that are still in such good fiscal shape” “it’s an example to be admired and well positioned to attract families and retirees well into the future”.
Both articles focused on strong TLA leadership, aggressive marketing by The Landings Real Estate Company and re-investment by the TLA and The Club as the main reasons the community remains even better than when it began.
The most recent article focused on a few key points that differentiate The Landings from other amenity communities. It stated that ‘The Landings is a model of planned residential development success. They offer fiscal stability at a time when some developments have faltered. But deeper than the amenities, buildings and infrastructure you would expect, there is a hometown sense of place, partly because they are complete, but mainly because of the people who make it their home. They are the heart and soul of this owner-operated, micro town.’
Part of the article included resident interviews. Three Landings resident couples generously shared their personal journey and experience to find the perfect retirement locale with Ideal Living
. They all seemed to agree that the warm weather, the beauty of Skidaway Island, the wide range of activities available at The Landings, the proximity to the City of Savannah, and the friendships they have made all add up to “a little slice of heaven”.
