Redevelopment has Indianapolis Fire Department Move Station

For the past 36 years, the Indianapolis Fire Department has occupied a converted building near the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and New Jersey Street. Now, a push for redevelopment of the area has forced IFD to move their headquarters and Fire Station 7 to a new facility a few blocks north.

The new IFD building off Fort Wayne Avenue was built as part of the Mass Ave. redevelopment. The $7 million building was financed using tax incrementing financing (TIF) funds.

Station 7 Captain Ron Kautsky said the new station’s more open layout will help improve response times. Firefighters moved into the new facility on Nov. 23.
