Three downtown SCAD properties on market

The Savannah College of Art and Design has listed three of its properties on the market with commercial real estate company CBRE. The college maintains more than 60 buildings around Savannah and an equestrian center in Hardeeville, S.C.

The properties include Bergen Hall at 101 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.; Corbin Hall, 600 E. Broughton St.; and Evans Hall at 212 W. Hall St., which is currently listed under contract.

“As SCAD enrollment continues to grow, our facilities evolve each year to improve services for students and provide the best art and design education,” the university said in an emailed statement.

Listed for $6.2 million, Chatham County property records show SCAD purchased Bergen in 1990 and the space is currently home to the college’s photography department. The nearly 30,000-square-foot building was built in 1926 and is four stories tall and well-suited for classrooms, office, apartment conversion or boutique hotel conversion, according to the listing. The 2016 fair market value for the building, according to Chatham County tax records, was just over $3.1 million.

Corbin Hall, which is home to SCAD Studio and offers yoga, Pilates and dance classes, is listed for $775,000. The 3,000-square-foot building was constructed in 1830 and is part of Trustees Garden area. SCAD purchased the building in 1995 and the 2016 fair market value for the building is $708,600, according to tax records.

Evans Hall, which was formally The Old Georgian Inn, was constructed around 1890.

The property is under contract and has a selling price of $1,195,000. The main structure is 7,227-square-feet and includes a 1,012-square-foot carriage house. Records show SCAD purchased the building in 2005, and the market value in 2016 was $1,588, 500.
