New use for old Chicago fire station

From the website of Matt O’Shea, 19th Ward Alderman in Chicago:

Yesterday, the City of Chicago’s Community Development Commission (CDC) approved Optimo Fine Hat Company‘s plans to renovate the old Chicago Fire Station, Engine Company 121, at 1700 W. 95th St.  For the past several months, Optimo owner Graham Thompson has been working to acquire and revitalize this historic Chicago building.  Moving forward, Optimo’s production workshop will move into the fire station with retail functions remaining at the 10215 S. Western location.

This project will not only breathe new life into a once great building, but also eliminate a vacancy on 95th Street and generate new property tax revenue for the City.  After winning CDC approval yesterday, the property transfer will be brought to the full City Council in October.  This is a very exciting development, and I am grateful to Optimo Hats for there continued investment in our community. If you have any questions about this project, please contact Tristan Angus at Tristan@the19thward.com or (773) 238-8766.

thanks Dennis

Chicago Firehouse of Engine 86

This from Martin Nowak:

Drove by Engine 86 house and decided to take a picture. Well turns out that the Members of this house painted their doors and added companies to the door. Also the benches were painted and they also say companies on them. Each one dedicated to the three companies, Engine 86, Truck 57, and Ambulance 20.
