Groundbreaking marks new office building

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A big crowd gathered at Ellis Square on Friday morning to mark the building of a new office space.

Savannah's newest office space is being built right on top of the Whitaker Street garage, overlooking the square. The Cay Building will be the new home to the U.S. Attorney's Office, along with business and office space.

"This is of course a very historic site overlooking Ellis Square. Many years ago, there stood a wholesale grocer here, and we think our new building in height, scale, mass and architectural detail will reflect historic Savannah's beauty. It will complement the square," said John Cay, of Wells Fargo Insurance.

A company out of Atlanta is developing the property. Construction is supposed to wrap up by next spring.
