Abercorn Common Website

  Abercorn Common is the first LEED rated (silver) shopping center in the country. This project was created by renovating and expanding an existing, obsolete, second tier strip retail center. The design of the center takes cues from the traditional masonary vocabulary of Historic Savannah. We added an enhanced, landscaped, pedestrian zone for shoppers. The new center returns a prime retail site to its full potential and sets a new benchmark for sustainable development in the open retail format.

LEED features include many aspects of water conservation, materials use and waste reduction, energy savings, indoor air quality and reduction of heat island effects
