City Looking Into Marketing Practices of Apartment Complex

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

The City of Savannah and residents living near a new apartment complex feel they were promised one thing but given another. 

The Avenues on 61st is in the process of getting built and was approved as a multi-family residential apartment but the City of Savannah said it's not being leased that way.

Alderwoman Mary Ellen Sprague said instead of leasing a unit to one family, the complex is letting individuals rent one room at a time.

"There should only be one contract per unit not four contracts per unit," said Sprague.

Sprague said the apartment complex is violating the original proposal.

"Absolutely furious. I mean they lied to us, they lied to the metropolitan planning commission, they lied to the residents, they are not doing anything they proposed in any shape or fashion and when we asked them to stop they have not stopped," said Sprague.

Two parking spaces also come with each four bedroom unit, which wouldn't be enough if every room was occupied by an individual.

"They are going to have way too many cars. It's being built with two car garages so there will not be a parking problem but because they are renting to students and renting far more than they said that they were we are going to have some serious parking issues," said Sprague.

The city has notified the apartment complex that they have until May 10th to go back to selling units not rooms or they will take further action.

News 3 called the developer and the management company several times Friday but they did not return any calls.
