About the project
West Broad is poised to become the center of commercial activity in Savannah’s rapidly emerging Westside. Located on MLK Boulevard, West Broad also offers frontage on Charlton and West Jones streets. Previously known to all locals as the “Thrifty Building”, West Broad is undergoing revitalization to bring new life into this 55,000 sf complex.
THE SPACE INSIDE
- All spaces can be renovated to tenants needs
- 1,200-15,000 sq. ft., starting at $17/sq. ft.
- Affordable rents

- Potential shared conference room and business center

The ongoing reconstruction work will maintain the historic lines and classic character that have graced Savannah for more than a century, while offering today’s tenants the 21 st century amenities that they expect. West End will become a complementary mix of entertainment, shopping, general business and upscale residences while maintaining its Savannah heritage. All Savannahians will both fondly remember the past and take pride in the present when West Broad’s vision is fulfilled.

REVOLUTIONIZING WORK LIFE
“I think the reason co-working has taken off so well in the last four to five years in the States is that when the economy bottomed out and people were released from their work, they started being creative about how to find themselves, how to work differently, how to reengineer their lives. I don’t think people are eager to go back to the way it was.”
– Ken Janke, New Urban Network
