The city of Anniston might buy and restore Watermark Tower to turn it into a new City Hall and possibly economically stimulate downtown.

City Manager Brian Johnson said the Anniston City Council is interested in purchasing the 11-story, historic Noble Street building after hearing a property assessment report of it during its Monday work session. Johnson said the city needs to move not just to leave a deteriorating City Hall, but to make space for a possible new federal courthouse. In addition, repurposing Watermark Tower and putting it to good use could help in the city's larger plans to revitalize downtown, Johnson and real estate consultants said.
