We are thrilled to announce the groundbreaking of 400 E ST SW, the future home of Engine 13 ! City dignitaries attended the ceremony in December including Mayor Vincent Gray and DC FEMS Chief Ellerbe.
This project is the culmination of a public-private partnership and the first project in DC where a high rise is built above a new modern fire station. The project provides a practical urban solution to promote high density development within the city while providing an essential city service. It is the type of model that will continue to be used as the population grows and land in this city becomes scarce. And, yes there will be a slide pole in the new fire station.
Please check out the webcam to see the construction progress.
