Colonial Group, a diversified group of companies focused on the energy, chemicals, distribution, and logistics industries, will relocate its corporate headquarters to 1375 Chatham Parkway, the facility built for the Savannah Morning News in 2003.
“Our Colonial family has grown significantly over the past several years,” said Christian Demere, president and CEO of Colonial Group. “With our Savannah area employees currently working in eight different offices that have reached or are nearing capacity, we are thrilled to secure this larger facility that will consolidate our office personnel. This location will create a more collaborative atmosphere for our employees which will allow us to better support our operations and accommodate our needs as we continue to grow."See also: Colonial Terminals to develop $100M breakbulk site
The newly acquired three-story office encompasses an impressive 99,000 square feet, situated on more than 17 acres. The property also includes an additional 145,000 sq.-ft. warehouse previously used as a newspaper press and distribution facility.
Building renovations are expected to begin in the near term, and Colonial Group intends to relocate the majority of their local corporate personnel to the new headquarters over time.
