Fire Station No. 3 Replacement Project
Fire Station No. 3, located at 799 Embarcadero Road in Palo Alto is a wood framed structure built in 1948 and is approximately 3,500 sf. The new Fire Station No. 3 will replace the aging Fire Station No. 3 and will meet current California Building Codes (CBC), Essential Services Building Seismic Safety Act, American with Disabilities Act (ADA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and OSHA standards. Per City Council policy established in 2007, the building will be designed to attain LEED Silver Certification.
The Fire Station No. 3 Replacement project is a Council Infrastructure Plan project and is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Fire Station No. 4 Replacement Project, located at 3600 Middlefield Road, is next in line when funding is available.
The project includes installation of a Temporary Fire Station No. 3, located at 2000 Geng Road, in order to maintain essential services to the public for a period of up to two years.
||An existing ‘stealth’ wireless communication facility (WCF) ‘flagpole’ located on the site will be removed, replaced, and relocated. A separate Architectural Review Application will be required for the new WCF. Further information will be provided when available.
