The updated design for a fire station in Jersey City, New Jersey’s, Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood has been revealed, reports Jersey Digs.
A neighborhood that has been privy to much development over the past few years will be getting a new fire station that could soon take a big step forward.
In late September 2020, Jersey City’s planning board heard an application for a 0.4-acre parcel at 627 Grand Street. The currently plan for the vacant land is a new two-story fire station for the fire department’s Engine 10 and Ladder 12. The station would replace Engine 10’s previous headquarters at 283 Halladay Street, which has been closed for some time.
The city commissioned Mountainside-based Netta Architects to design the 11,751-square-foot station, which would feature a brick façade on the front and fiber cement panels on the west and rear portions of the building. A ground face concrete masonry band capped with case stone pieces will run along the base of the building.
