Meet the neighbors: New Fire Department HQ

Beautiful! That’s one word to describe the City of Charlotte’s Fire Department headquarters – now being built on a five-acre site at the Five Points intersection of Graham Street, Dalton Avenue and Statesville Avenue just minutes from Brightwalk.

David Tobin, partner with Tobin Starr + Partners, says the fire department is designed with an emphasis on elegant simplicity in design, utility and longevity. The facility will be 38,000-square feet and should be complete by 2013.

One exciting feature will be the inclusion of lobby space designed to display a 1902-era horse-drawn steamer used by the City of Charlotte fire department at the turn of the last century. A beauty indeed!
