Former Fire Station 6 - Disposition

With a new Fire Station 6 completed at 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Way S., the City of Seattle’s Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) has initiated public outreach on the disposition of the former Fire Station 6 (located at 101 23rd Ave. S.)

On February 17, 2012, the Opportunity for Input community flier concerning the disposition of former Fire Station 6 was mailed to taxpayers and residents residing within a 1,000 foot radius of the former fire station, as well as to community groups and other interested parties. It is the first of many opportunities for the public to provide comment on disposition of former Fire Station 6.

Disposition Process

All respondents now, or at any time during the process, will be placed on a contact list and receive future information as it becomes available. FAS has produced a Preliminary Report and Recommendation which:

  • Analyzed the property characteristics
  • Compiled and reviewed public comments received*
  • Reported any interest from other City or Governmental agencies
  • Reviewed land use constraints and the real estate market
  • Made a recommendation based on the above factors

FAS’ preliminary recommendation is that this property be sold through an open competitive process that reaches the maximum number of potential purchasers, and that will produce the highest return to the City.

The procedures and steps for evaluating reuse and disposition of excess City property ensure transparency of process, and that different ideas and proposals are considered and evaluated. Comment is not limited to the 30-day comment period but is taken throughout the process.


This webpage will be updated as information becomes available.
