Thomas Square has become the hottest, hippest neighborhood in Savannah with the likes of Foxy Loxy Café, The Vault, Cotton and Rye, Atlantic and so many others. Revitalization and a well organized, long established neighborhood association have added great structure to the existing neighborhood fabric. This Midtown location has easy access to Victory Drive, the Drayton/Whitaker Corridor, 37th Street Connector and the Truman Parkway to ensure quick travel to all parts of town. Can’t really go wrong with this one as this area is about to really “blow up” in the best of ways.
While it now sits in the heart of midtown, Thomas Square was Savannah’s first suburb, where a post-Civil War middle class sought modern convenience, spacious homes and a reasonable streetcar commute into the city.
Suburb suggests a certain sameness, a certain predictable design and uniformity. However, the streets in the Thomas Square neighborhood show an area with a patchwork quilt of uses and restorations. Some areas have tree-lined streets, bricked sections of road, historically land-scaped medians, “door yard” gardens and stately Victorian homes painstakingly restored by investors or long-time residents.
