Additional Info
Background Video.The building and site are designed to be “a good neighbor” to the Barrio. The building respects the community’s culture and traditions. For example, the south portion of the site is given back to the Barrio as a formal Placita, designed in the spirit of a traditional Mexican plaza. Space is also provided for a memorial to the homes lost during the 1960’s urban renewal. In white stucco on masonry, the 32’ tall building encompasses 60,000 square feet of program, but is compatible in scale with the nearby adobe homes. In the spirit of a traditional fire station, a bell tower rises to 45’ and provides an observation patio to showcase the historic “5 Mile Bell.” Tucson Fire Home Page.
