Just a quick post on historic Fire Station No. 10 in Avondale for which the City is soliciting redevelopment proposals . Anybody who may be interested in preserving this gem with a creative reuse should respond to the Request for Proposal here.
Hopefully this RFP will be much better publicized than the one for Fire Station No. 22 on Clairmont Avenue, so we don’t all wake up surprised by a Walgreen’s!
Deadline for submission is November 15, with the Mayor announcing the winner December 15. Interestingly, unlike the ill-fated RFP for No. 22, this RFP is emphatic about the historic nature of the fire station, and encourages preservation.
