Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District

Location: Savannah, GA

Client: Kessler Collection – Marriott Autograph

Preliminary plans were completed for the Plant Riverside site for a Grand Bohemian at Historic Power Plant. It would anchor the $100 million-plus redevelopment of the waterfront property, which straddles the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and River Street.
  • The 160-room Grand Bohemian would be housed in the historic power plant, along with a café, a restaurant and bar, a 3,500 seat ballroom, a 3,000 s.f. art gallery and other upscale retail.
  •  Kessler proposed to build a combination exhibition hall/parking garage to the west of the power plant along the riverfront.
  •  The cleared lot east of the power plant,which once was home to the transformer farm, initially would be converted to a grassed plaza and reserved for future development.
