Excerpts from dnainfo.com:

 The 102-year-old firehouse at 1723 W. Greenleaf Ave. is back up for grabs after the city opened the property to bids for the third time since it closed in 2009.

On Monday, the city’s Department of Planning and Development issued a request for proposals for the two-story  firehouse and the target selling price is $315,000.

The station, formerly the home of Engine Co. No. 102, has been on the market twice since it closed in 2009 following the construction of a newer firehouse.

Between 2013 and 2014, several interested parties vied for the space and Ald. Joe Moore (49th) eventually whittled down the proposals to three — a Hindu temple, a home-office space and headquarters for two economic support and social organizations — though none of the prospects came to fruition.

Shortly after it closed, the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society also made a move for the property, though that plan also eventually fell through.

The 6,323-square-foot building was finished in 1915 and sits atop a 8,934-square-foot lot, and is currently zoned for residential developments, though the planning department is willing to consider requests that require zoning changes.

It’s potential use is flexible, according to the city, but “respondents must respect the existing land uses and architecture of the surrounding area when submitting proposals,” and proposals should “preserve the historically significant exterior elements and basic structure of the building.”

Among its features is a vintage air raid siren installed in 1942 and operated by a Chrysler motor known as the “1 Chrysler Victory Bell.”
