North Augusta, South Carolina, located directly across the Savannah River from Augusta, is an integral part of Augusta's urban core and the Urban Area Master Plan. North Augusta and Augusta are each critical to the other's economic health and current revitalization. A short drive across either the 13th Street Bridge or the 5th Street Bridge allows North Augusta and Augusta residents to work, play and purchase goods in both cities. The Savannah River is not a deterrent to development on both sides of the River, but has become the main street between the two cities.
North Augusta is busy developing a vibrant urban core with shopping, residential, a new hotel and a stadium that will be home to the Augusta GreenJackets baseball team.
Through the years the project has been altered and interrupted by a number of surprises, such as barrow pits, thousands of waste bricks, environmental issues, and an archaeological find.
Currently, Hammond's Ferry is full of activity with many new homes being built around the town center. An authentic French restaurant is one anchor of the town center and is a gathering place for residents of this unique development.
Jackson Square's grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony occurred in September 2007. Jackson Square is a two-story office and retail complex built in a neo-traditional style designed to complement downtown North Augusta.
Jackson Square signaled a new focus on downtown North Augusta development and is a part of the North Augusta Town Center Market Creation Project. Jackson Square is now home to a number of businesses.
Preliminary planning for the Municipal Center began in 2002. the land was purchased in 2005 and construction began in 2007. The building was designed to grow with the City through the current century.
The North Augusta Municipal Center is an anchor for the North Augusta Town Center.
The extensive frontage along East Martintown Road provides opportunity for a large scale retail center to be sited in this area. Also, with the completion of the I-520 extension to I-20, this interchange at the eastern end of this district is going to become a major gateway into both Augusta and North Augusta.
Because of the high potential of this area, it is recommended that current zoning be reviewed and modified and urban design guidelines should be drawn up to take full advantage of this area. The Master Plan sets forth an initial set of recommendations for this East Buena Vista Village to include large retail shopping, single-family and higher residential development and an overlook with connections to the Greeneway and Hamburg on the river.
