SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

We're learning the vacant lot at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and West Bolton Lane is set to become Savannah's newest office building.

The Metropolitan Planning Commission approved the three-story building to house the Community and Economic Development Bureau.

The lot was the location of city's first black-owned pharmacy.

Original plans were to restore it, but it was eventually demolished because of structural problems.

The plan still needs to be approved by Savannah City Council. We will keep you updated on that.
