Savannah, Chatham County
Broughton Street was the historic economic corridor of Savannah, though decades of blight and vacancy had plagued the downtown. Ben Carter Enterprises began acquiring buildings along Broughton St. Called the Broughton Street Collection, 16 buildings were rehabilitated. The work included removing concrete and stucco facades, exposing historic brick and stone detailing and historic windows. Interiors were rehabilitated creating 22 storefronts occupied by local and national retailers and 48 upper story residential units. The renovations have made a large impact on restoring the historic fabric along Broughton Street. Ben Carter Enterprises’ work spans six blocks with a total private investment of $90 million.
