(La Porte, IN) - La Porte city planners are considering a proposal to renovate and repurpose and old fire station in town.
The old firehouse at 910 State St., nestled comfortably next to the US 35 overpass, has recently been used as a senior center. But the building itself is a little elderly and needs rejuvenation.
A local developer has offered to buy the property for a little over $200,000. The developer recently rehabbed 702 Lincolnway, turning it into a viable retail/residential property.
Their current proposal for the old fire station is also mixed-use: office space on the second floor and an entertainment venue down below. The redevelopment could start to bring some life to an area soon to be opened up by the demolition of the hospital nearby.
City officials are reviewing the proposal for further action.
