About the Arena

Our Vision

The thriving city, the diverse community, and the extremely healthy economy makes Savannah a perfect destination for events that span music, food, adventure, sports, and entertainment. ​

The vision of the new arena will bring a positive and impactful effect to Savannah, surrounding community, and region, creating a booming entertainment destination. 

Our Community

Located just under one mile from the Civic Center, the new arena will expand the current downtown district while revitalizing a historic section. The new arena will bring a new level of entertainment to the region while breathing new life into a quiet section of Savannah.

The Vision

Savannah, Georgia is a charming southern escape where art, period architecture, trendy boutiques and ghost stories are all set under a veil of Spanish moss.

With its elegant Historic District, and festive delights like River Street and City Market, all wrapped in a unique coastal charm, it’s no wonder that Savannah is one of the top tour and leisure destinations in the U.S.

The development of a new arena and the surrounding canal district on Savannah’s westside is one of the largest projects to ever be undertaken by the City of Savannah. The new arena site presents the opportunity to redevelop the canal district to the west of West Boundary Street, creating a vibrant new center of activity in Savannah’s core.
