New Plant Riverside District Now Open; Set To Transform Savannah

The US is reeling under depressing news of COVID – 19 infections, and it hits you on the face whenever you switch on the TV or read the daily newspaper. But there is something to cheer about for the citizens of Georgia. The Plant Riverside District is the largest hospitality project in Savannah and opened its doors to the public on 29th July after almost three years of construction work. Hundreds gathered to celebrate the opening on the waterfront. The brand new entertainment district has excellent opportunities for the residents of Savannah and its guests. Located on the west side of River Street, the latest entertainment center will offer unique experiences with the new restaurants, shops, and bars. It would not be wrong to say that the Plant Riverside District is the iconic entertainment destination of the Savannah district with its numerous walk-through attractions, live entertainment options, and upscale retail spaces.

It has been a dream come true for Richard Kessler, who had acquired this four-acre property almost five years ago. The project will generate around 700 jobs and USD 30 million in taxes for the city. The area once housed a power plant, but today the Plant Riverside District is the epitome of progress. The area offers as many as 419 rooms, including the uber-luxurious JW Marriott. It is a beautiful gift for the locals who have never seen or enjoyed anything like this in the district before.

The grand opening of the Plant Riverside District was attended by Geoff Duncan (Lieutenant Governor of Georgia), present and former leaders of Savannah, and everyone who had worked with Kessler on this prestigious project. Apart from developing it as an entertainment center, the developers have also added unique touches like fountains, original art, and sculptures that will add to the visitors’ experience. In a nutshell, the Plant Riverside District offers a spending experience for visitors through various culinary delights, art galleries, riverfront parks, and natural science exhibits that will spark your imagination.
