Since its debut in 2019, Starland Yard — Savannah’s first food truck container park — has become a unique and permanent hub of food, beverage, music, and culture for the entire Savannah community. Starland Yard’s aesthetic pays homage to Savannah’s port economy, with the project’s primary structure composed of more than 20 upcycled shipping containers that have been cut, stacked, and placed end-to-end. This family-friendly oasis features a rotating roster of food trucks, centrally-located bar, brick-and-mortar pizzeria, rooftop for special events, onsite parking, and courtyard housing a play area and bocce ball court. Situated in Savannah’s up-and-coming Starland District, Starland Yard transformed a once-vacant lot into a thriving community meeting place. For its innovative design and construction, the project won the prestigious 2020 AGC Build America Award and the 2020 AGC Build Georgia Award.
