SEDA Savannah Manufacturing Center

719-Acre Property Set To Become Area’s First Manufacturing Center

The Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA) awarded the engineering and surveying contract for its new, 685-acre manufacturing park on Old River Road in west Chatham County to the team of Hussey Gay Bell/Thomas & Hutton.  Phase I consisted of conceptual work, confirmation of water and system demands, master planning, preliminary design and surveying. Thomas & Hutton is responsible for overall site development and engineering services as well as entrance road infrastructure, while Hussey Gay Bell is responsible for overall water and sewer master planning and design, site design support and surveying.  The GRAD certified site, 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. The new park will give SEDA the much-needed industrial property and greater flexibility to entice manufacturing to Savannah.  Although the property’s master plan includes a number of smaller parcels, the centerpiece is a 194-acre manufacturing park with the ability to accommodate a 1.3 million square foot building. Adjacent to that is a 170-acre parcel capable of supporting nearly 990,000 SF and currently includes Gulfstream located on 150 acres and supporting 750,000 SF of buildable area, as well as Mitsubishi’s 330,000 SF manufacturing facility.
