Frequently Asked Questions

New Jobs. New Industry. New Investment.

We deeply value our relationship with Savannah’s residents, stakeholders, and community partners. As we work together to bring new opportunities and employment to our community, we want you to have the information, resources, and access to be a trusted partner in this process.

If you find yourself curious about a specific aspect of SeaPoint’s development, or just want to learn more, please contact our Community Affairs Director, Carmen Bergman, at

  • What kind of industry can be expected at SeaPoint?

    SeaPoint is a multi-use industrial facility zoned for Heavy Industrial activity. We also have exceptional logistics infrastructure, including water, rail, and road access, which many of the world’s top companies need to have.

    This means SeaPoint can support manufacturing, research and development, logistics, and shipping and trade operations, all of which will bring jobs and investment to the Savannah community.

  • What kind of jobs and investment will SeaPoint bring to the area?

    A study conducted by the University of Georgia estimates SeaPoint and its supported industries will generate over 1700 direct high-wage jobs on site and support an additional 3600+ jobs in the surrounding area, and over 25,000 jobs throughout the state of Georgia.

    All of this will be made possible by an estimated $2 Billion in private investment, largely facilitated by the Federal Opportunity Zone program.

  • How will the traffic generated by these industries impact me?

    Our team lives in Savannah, just like you. We understand that getting to work, school, or home on time and safely is a top priority.

    Our facility is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Additional truck traffic generated by new industrial activity can utilize these hours, especially non-peak hours, to help ease congestion.

    Additionally, we have been very supportive of the City of Savannah’s effort to install “Quiet Zones” along the rail line that connects to our facility. These quiet zones enhance the safety features at crossings so that trains can utilize their horn only in emergency situations.

  • What is SeaPoint doing to help offset any environmental impacts new industry will bring?

    Environmentalism and sustainability are at the core of SeaPoint. Our most substantial commitment to environmentalism is in our site plan: locating synergistic companies side-by-side dramatically reduces drayage, or the transport of goods over a short distance. A company that locates on our site can bring in their raw material by vessel, process it on site, and ship it by rail or ship to its final destination without a single truck having to leave our facility.

    At the entrance of our property sits a 1 MW solar field, which was formerly a city landfill, and a new honeybee sanctuary. If you continue into the site, you’ll find a steam-driven turbo generator set, which helps offset some electrical use.

    Most importantly, SeaPoint is making productive use of a former industrial site. Rather than developing ‘new’ land, we have invested nearly $40 million to remediate the property, and revitalize existing infrastructure on site that can be re-used by future tenants.
