Station 35 - Crown Hill
About the Station
Fire Station 35, located at 8729 15th Ave. NW, houses one engine company and a reserve engine.
To meet current earthquake safety standards and accommodate today's modern equipment and firefighting operations, the old Fire Station 35 required significant work. As a result, a new station was designed and built on the existing site.
The architectural firm Rice, Fergus, Miller designed the upgrade.
The project scope included:
- A new station built to current seismic safety standards
- Two stories
- Three apparatus bays
During the station upgrade, the station was relocated to an interim facility located at 9089 Holman Road. The temporary station ensured continued fire and medic response to the neighborhood served by Fire Station 35.
The project was completed in August 2010.
- August 2010: Firefighters moved into the newly completed station.
- August 2009: Kirtley-Cole Associates was awarded the construction contract. The groundbreaking took place with Councilmember Licata, firefighters, Fire Levy staff and a community member representing the Crown Hill Business Association participating.
- November 2008: About 20 neighbors discussed the temporary station with Fire Levy staff at the Crown Hill Arts Festival.
- March 2008: Approximately 250 community members attended the design development open house to see the station design and the fire engine.
- August 2007: About 200 neighbors attended the pre-design scope open house to learn about the new station, view sketches, meet the firefighters and tour the engine.
- July 2007: The Design Commission reviewed the scope/concept design. The Public Art Advisory Committee selected Kay Kirkpatrick of Seattle to create art for display outside the fire station.
- December 2006: Rice, Fergus, Miller were selected as the project architects.
