A very unique property has just recently been put up for sale in St. Paul and the St. Paul Planning and Economic Development Department are planning to do everything they can to ensure it remains part of the city’s landscape.
Once the oldest active firehouse in St. Paul, Station 10 was originally built all the way back in 1885 and was actually still in use by the St. Paul Fire Department until recently.
Now out of commission, however, the city of St. Paul is seeking offers from a developer who may want to re-vamp the existing structure while maintaining its original charm and character.
Located at 754 Randolph Avenue, not far from plenty of shopping and dining along West Seventh Street, Station 10 actually sits in a prime location, which should help make it an appealing project for the right developer.
As of now, the two-story, 10,000 square foot building is currently zoned for residential, but the planning department is open to the idea of the building being used for other purposes.
According to a recent interview in the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, a spokeswoman for the St. Paul Planning and Economic Development Department mentioned the estimated market value of Station 10 is currently $580,400, but all reasonable offers on the property are currently being accepted.
