Opus brings boutique-style luxury apartment living to Savannah with The Helmsman

Situated on the edge of the historic district in Savannah, Ga., The Helmsman is a boutique-style luxury apartment community near the Savannah College of Art and Design. The 155,000-square-foot, five-story building has 104 apartments that can accommodate up to 283 residents total, helping to meet a need for student-centered housing in an area where demand has outpaced supply.
