As the new £15m Ambulance and Fire Services Resource Centre is completed and Wrexham’s original Fire Station closes, there is suddenly a new and exceedingly quirky redevelopment opportunity up for grabs.
Boasting original design and a host of original features, Wrexham’s old Fire Station is expected to generate a lot of interest. Ideally situated in Wrexham’s town centre, property Consultants Bruton Knowles are expecting to receive a range of creative re development ideas for commercial or residential use as the sale of the building progresses.
Gareth Lay, Associate and Team Manager at Bruton Knowles’ Shrewsbury office comments:
“The sale of such an iconic landmark in the town presents an exciting redevelopment opportunity for anyone looking to acquire such a well located re-development opportunity. We are looking forward to showing people interested in the property, all that it has to offer.
“Built in the 1950’s, this fire station originally housed three fire engines and included a technical rescue unit, an aerial ladder platform used for carrying out rescues from heights and an environmental protection unit. Owning a wonderful history, we are sure that this building will fire the imagination of all that come to view it.”
In need of upgrading, Wrexham’s Fire Station was considered too small for the needs of the borough and further to the co-location of the North Wales Fire & Rescue Service and the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust on a site in the Croesnewydd Road area, the Fire Station was decommissioned, closed and handed over to Bruton Knowles for sale.
