Entry Description

The Savannah Rowlocks Station is designed to replace the I-16 flyover into the downtown area of Savannah and reestablish the once demolished Coastal Railway station and reinvest Savannah into utilizing the great railway system of America. Using GIS data, the low- income housing lots to the South were redeveloped into workforce and mixed use apartments to rehabilitate those currently living in the area to be able to live in better housing, have a convenient access to work and the ability to successfully thrive in the City of Savannah. The outdoor structure and repetition involved in the canon of the stations architecture not only lowers cost but enables the use of building materials in the Savannah area adding back to the economy of the city and providing a beautiful travel experience for those that choose to utilize the stations cheaper and more efficient form of long distance travel.
