“I’ll have a job for a while longer,” laughs Kessler. “We keep inventing new ideas.” His Kessler Collection includes boutique hotels occupying historic buildings throughout the country, including many here in Savannah. He was responsible for renovating, restoring and revitalizing the Mansion on Forsyth, the Kehoe House, the Armstrong Kessler Mansion and of course, perhaps his most ambitious project, Plant Riverside District.
“I have a good feeling for the city and the people here,” explains Kessler. “Plant Riverside was about adding to the fabric and the quality of life for the people that live here and those that visit.”
