T&H/HGB Team Selected for SEDA’s Manufacturing Park
Savannah, GA – The Savannah Economic Development Authority on Tuesday awarded the engineering contract for its new, 685-acre manufacturing park on Old River Road in west Chatham County to the Thomas & Hutton/Hussey Gay Bell Team comprised of both local legacy firms, approving an initial expenditure of $35,000 for Phase I of the project. Phase I will consist of conceptual work, confirmation of system demands and preliminary design. The property, which encompasses the Newton Tract and 50 percent of the Durrence Tract adjacent to Interstate 16, is master-planned for between 3.25 million and 3.5 million square feet of industrial building space. Authority president and CEO Trip Tollison said development of the new park will give SEDA the much-needed industrial property and greater flexibility to entice manufacturing to Savannah.
The purchase of the property was made possible through the county’s one-cent special purpose local option sales tax, or SPLOST VI, approved by voters in November 2013.
