“Local luxury hotel developer Richard Kessler has added another historic Savannah building to his list of acquisitions, following the development of Plant Riverside, the Bohemian, and the Mansion on Forsyth Park. Kessler’s limited liability corporation, which shares the Florida address of his hotel development company, The Kessler Collection, recently purchased the downtown mansion at 26 East Gaston St. for $4.75 million on Feb. 27, according to the sales record.

Located a block away from the Armstrong Mansion that Kessler purchased for use as a private residence in 2017, it is unclear how the property will be used.
