10/02/12 140 W, 2 I - + 3 - 5 Old Station 4 > New Mattress Firm

Looks like Old Station 4 on Wake Forest Road is destined for demolition. A reader passes along this city planning development document (PDF), with shows a mattress firm planned for the location. Based on the site plan, it appears that a new, 4,395 square-foot building is planned. (Can't be a rebuild, can it?) The existing structure was occupied on April 12, 1963. The two-bay fire station cost $63,000 to build. Engine 4 was relocated from 505 Jefferson Street. The station also housed a tanker and a Battalion Chief (then called District Chief) during its years. It was relocated to 121 Northway Court in 1993. The building served as office space for the city, and was sold after closing on April 1, 1997. Read more history. Or see photos of the building. Thanks John!
