Buckner Circle Re-development at McClellan
Historic McClellan sees more development. There are plans to convert several historic Mclellan homes into a retirement facility. It is part of the ongoing efforts to redevelop the former military base and stimulate the local economy. Officials say the Buckner Circle development will have 117 units and an estimated 150 residents. Diversified Real Estate Services plans to develop five former barracks on Buckner Circle into independent living facilities by 2015. There’s also a request for Anniston to repave the roads around the five buildings. City Manager Brian Johnson estimated the repaving request would cost the city between $75,000 and $150,000. The council is expected to vote on the request at its Monday meeting.
