Savannah moves ahead with plans to build new arena

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Savannah is moving ahead with its plans to construct a $140 million arena.

The Savannah City Council recently awarded AECOM Hunt an $11.2 million construction management contract for the planned facility.
  
The Savannah Morning News reports that AECOM will manage construction of the planned 269,000-square-foot arena.
  
It's expected to contain about 9,000 seats, 12 luxury suites and 450 club seats.
  
The construction manager is expected to work closely with the architectural team during the design and construction phases of the arena to bring the project in on schedule and within budget.
  
Construction of the arena is expected to begin next year and be completed in the summer of 2021.
