The Best of Savannah

Best New Building

Plant Riverside

Technically not a new building of course, but Richard Kessler’s massive $350 million makeover of the old Savannah Electric powerplant on west River Street is a new concept not only in Savannah, but getting national attention as well. From the repurposing of the plant into a JW Marriott complete with replica dinosaurs, to an extended new riverwalk area for dining and nightlife, the Plant Riverside District is a major new chapter in local tourism and hospitality.
