02/18/10 70 W, 1 I - + 10 - 8 Building Around Old Stations

The story of Dilworth fire station dilemma in Charlotte makes me think of Engine 6 in Washington D.C. Their old station, which operated from 1855 to 1974, has survived by being "built around." The historic structure is located on 438 Massachusetts Avenue NW. Learn more about historic DCFD houses, which was Mike's project last summer, while passing through on his way to Baltimore.

Now, could this work in Charlotte, for Old Station 2? From the reader comments on the original story, it sounds like the lot is too small to building anything grand. Maybe if there were multiple lots involved or available?
