ADAPTIVE REUSE PROPOSED FOR CENTRAL FIRE STATION
The city’s Downtown Development Review Board is reviewing plans for an adaptive reuse project at the historic downtown Central Fire Station.
Iconic Real Estate Investments is looking for approval to replace historic windows, doors, and roofing, and to modify its usage from residential to commercial, office, or restaurant. No tenants have been announced yet for the project.
The fire station, located at 39 E. Adams St., was constructed in 1902 and significantly modified in 1944. It ceased operations in the 1980s and was later converted into a private residence.
Robbins Design Studio is the project architect.
