Reserve Center Disposal Splits Building between Applicants
- January 8, 2012
In a first for the Army Corps of Engineers’ Savannah District, the disposal of BRAC property resulted in dividing a building between two separate end users.
The city of Albemarle, S.C., obtained the Jesse Niven Reserve Center at no cost from the Army, but implemented an unusual reuse plan. Half of the building was conveyed to the city to use for offices for a homeless provider, fulfilling the federal requirement to offer the site to such organizations, said Vivian Davis, senior assistant district counsel for the district’s real estate division.
The other half of the building was conveyed to the city under the Federal Lands to Parks program, which allows communities to acquire surplus federal property at no cost for public parks and recreational uses.
