City council gave the greenlight for the Corpus Christi (TX) Fire Department to contract BRW Architects for more than $620,000 for the design of Station 3, reports kiiitv.com.
Voters in 2020 passed a bond for Station 3 on Morgan Street to be replaced by a new facility to be built a few blocks away, the report says.
The current Station 3, built in 1954, has been deemed too small and inadequate. Officials say building the new station will cost $7 million, which is expected to come from federal grants. BRW Architects was given design, bid, and construction contracts.
The new station is expected to be operational in January 2024, according to the report.
