City of Savannah Shedding More Real Estate


downtown-historic-districtTwo city of Savannah-owned buildings will soon be back in the hands of private designers – one of those for the first time in decades.

With a 6-3 vote in favor, the Atlantic Coast Line building at 601 East Liberty, as well as the Thomas Gamble building right next to City Hall, were sold with a combined net value of just over $17 million. However, not all council members were on board with the sales.

The city approved the sale of the Liberty Street building during last week’s council meeting. The plan is to make it mixed-use, residential, and commercial street-level. The city bought the Atlantic Coast Line building back in 2015 for $3.5 million. Just over three years later, the majority of council approved the sale price of $5.9 million to developer, Standard Companies. This agenda item was the first up for debate, with those opposed stating their reasons why for the record.
