Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop, members of City Council and the Jersey City Fire Department recently celebrated the start of construction on 627 Grand Street, Jersey City’s first new fire station in 20 years. The 12,000-square-foot station will replace a 116-year-old disused facility that was doomed after a structural collapse on the ground floor.
Designed by Netta Architects, the new fire hall is expected to achieve a LEED Silver certification structure with double bays to accommodate three full-size devices, advanced decontamination and hose extraction equipment, response equipment and a box. for firefighters.
“We continue our commitment to provide new opportunities in areas that need them most, and this fire hall is our latest investment in the key community assets that our residents deserve,” said Mayor Fulop. “This project is twofold in that we are putting the essential resources to take advantage of the recent growth in Bergen-Lafayette, while strengthening public safety with a newly equipped and modernized fire station to improve the safety of our brave firefighters and of the general public. “
When complete, the station will house Motor 10 and Ladder 12, formerly Halladay Street. Construction is expected to be completed by next summer.
