Fire Station Of The Future Costs $32 Million

NYC’s Rescue Company 2 is getting a brand-new home in 2018, and it’s a huge upgrade to their current station. The building features plenty of open spaces, which are inspired by firemen’s frequenting of voids during rescues.

آ…Rescue Company 2's firemen have always responded to New York City's most dangerous emergencies. For the last 31 years, they have worked and trained at their station in Brownsville, Brooklyn. But by summer 2018, they will get a massive, new, state-of-the-art home. Designed by architecture and urban design firm Studio Gang, the 20,000-square-foot station will feature an obstacle course and a pit to practice underground rescues. On the edge of the roof terrace will be hooks to practice scaling the building آ— which firemen often need to do in real-life situations.
