Vancouver eyes selling old fire station sites

first_imgNow that Vancouver’s two new fire stations are up and running, the city has to decide what to do with the old buildings.The new and improved fire stations 1 and 2 opened Jan. 23. The existing Fire Station 1, previously at 900 W. Evergreen Blvd., is now at 2607 Main St. Fire Station 2 has been moved from 400 E. 37th St. to 2106 Norris Road.The two new stations cost the city $16 million. The sale of the old stations could help recoup some of that cost. Chris Malone, Vancouver’s finance and asset management manager, said that’s been the plan all along.The old stations were declared surplus property back in March 2015, opening the door for the city council to move forward with selling the two sites.Sale price estimates put Station 1 at $1.44 million and Station 2 at $430,000. The buildings would be sold “as is,” and the city would handle the sale internally via a bid and review process.last_img
