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 as well as its riverfront. The riverfront development, known as Riverside Village at Hammond’s Ferry (formerly Project Jackson) will include shopping, residential, restaurants, a new hotel and a stadium that will be home to the Augusta GreenJackets baseball team.
