New Uses for Four Fire Stations

(Fort Point Consulting, Architect and Project Manager)

New Uses for Four Fire Stations is a comprehensive study done for the City of Springfield, Massachusetts in the spring of 2014. The study is part of the City's effort to find qualified buyers for these beautiful historic buildings. It uses Fort Point's well-regarded holistic methodology which incorporates code, zoning, historic, construction, proforma, market, and financing inputs. The result is a "words/numbers/pictures" analysis of numerous potential development options.
