2015 PRESERVATION AWARDS: EXCELLENCE IN REHABILITATION

COTTON SAIL HOTEL
Savannah, Chatham County

Originally constructed in 1852, the building now serving as the Cotton Sail Hotel was once a cotton warehouse on Savannah's historic Factor's Walk. The building has provided space for many different industrial and commercial uses in its long history, but this most recent project rehabilitated the upper three levels of the building to create a 56-room hotel. Exterior improvements included masonry stabilization, historic window repairs and storefront improvements along Bay Street. On the interior, historic material, such as 200-year-old heart pine, was retained and repurposed. A rooftop addition was designed to have minimal visual impact from the street below and does not overwhelm the historic character of the building. The excellent rehabilitation of this historic warehouse has contributed to the ongoing revitalization of the western end of Bay Street and Factor's Walk.
