Savannah Area's "Community of the Year" Breaks Ground on Latest Amenity

Richmond Hill, Ga. (March 3, 2015) – WaterWays Township, a 2,300-acre master-planned community in South Bryan County, announces its groundbreaking of the WaterWays Township Welcome Center. The Welcome Center will serve as the central location for information about WaterWays, including home ownership opportunities, scheduled events, social activities, and more.

Anticipated to open its doors in June 2015, the 3,100-square-foot Welcome Center will be conveniently located along WaterWays Parkway, near the community entrance. Placed gently in an open space known in the WaterWays community as “The Pastures,” the new facility will be built against a backdrop of native vegetation, towering holly trees, lush landscaping, and antique wood fencing. The wraparound front porch, equipped with inviting rocking chairs and lit by the warm glow of gas lanterns, will greet guests upon arrival.

Inside, the Welcome Center will provide a comfortable environment of sitting areas, a children’s play area, coffee bar, and a variety of presentation displays depicting the overall vision for the growing community. There will also be a location in the Welcome Center dedicated to the display of historical information about the land, including a collection of artifacts recovered from the original Cottenham Plantation estate, an area of the WaterWays property that once belonged to American automobile entrepreneur, Henry Ford.

“The groundbreaking of our new Welcome Center is another exciting addition for the WaterWays community,” said Vance Askew – marketing director, WaterWays Township. “Its presence on the property will present a glimpse of the low country lifestyle that our WaterWays residents love and live every day while providing a comfortable discovery space for new families interested in joining the WaterWays community.”

The creation of the Welcome Center is a collaboration of talented resources. Prosser Hallock, an architectural planning, engineering and renewable energy consulting firm headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., and JoAnn Green of G&L Residential Designs, Inc., in Richmond Hill worked together to create the architectural and interior concepts. Local residential builder Ted Flake of Keller Enterprises will oversee the construction.
