The renovation of Fire Station No. 3 preserved a neighborhood landmark.
Toledo, Ohio We are proud to be a part of the design team that revitalized the City of Toledo's Fire Station #3. The 12,670 SF renovation and 7,000 SF addition rejuvenated the 1927 structure anchoring the corner of Bush and Erie near downtown Toledo.
The renovation includes updated living quarters, office space, workout facilities, commercial grade kitchen and outdoor recreation spaces. Not to mention state of the art equipment bays and vehicle storage facilities. The near century old building has been restored and according to Fire Chief Santiago, it’s an anchor to the community.
During the renovation, the historic section was converted to living quarters and a new, two bay fire equipment house was constructed adjacent to the building. Special attention was paid to retaining the historic gestures of the building through design details such as reuse of the existing fire pole into the bar foot hold. Additionally, a memorial plaque honoring two fallen fire fighters was dedicated and mounted to the entrance of the equipment bays.
