The Coastal Georgia Foundation has commissioned a thorough and comprehensive assessment of residential market potential in downtown Brunswick. The study has been funded by seven stakeholders who donated a total of $30,000 to the effort. Read The Brunswick News July 23 editorial on the issue.
“We learned about this type of data-driven housing study on our May 30 trip to Macon,” says Paul White, President & CEO of the Coastal Georgia Foundation. “There, the housing study said downtown Macon could absorb ‘200 residential units per year.’ This number became a shared goal for developers, entrepreneurs, lenders and other investors in downtown Macon. We’ve been hearing from our local stakeholders that market data for Brunswick could similarly inform a residential strategy for a vibrant and diverse downtown.”
