Nothing is inherently and invincibly young except spirit.

What will we do with the Civic Center?


Savannah Civic Center

Keep the theatre, demolish the arena, add an office building

  • Savannah city officials unveiled their plan for the Savannah Civic Center site’s future
  • The plan calls for the restoration of six lost city blocks, a fully restored Orleans Square, a renovated Johnny Mercer Theater, and a new city of Savannah office building on Oglethorpe Avenue
  • City Manager Jay Melder told the council that the Johnny Mercer Theatre remains a viable and unique use for the city, but there is still work to be done
  • Another office building could be constructed on the lot to the north of the Civic Center complex
