Fire House Adaptive Re-use

Buffalo, NY


The owner of 310 Jersey contacted TRM for design services for the adaptive reuse of an 1875 historically registered firehouse (Engine 2 Truck 9) into four high end dwelling units on the second and third floors and an artist’s studio on the first floor along with a commercial space, and storage areas.


Exterior work includes window and door replacement, roof replacement, garage opening modifications, new entrances and a new stair tower to meet egress requirements. TRM is working diligently to keep the exterior facade true to its historic character, working closely with a window surveyor and matching the stair tower materials closely with that of the existing building to help blend the elements together. The stair tower includes a modern window assembly extending the full height of the tower to allow light into the corridor while differentiating this part of the building as a new addition onto the historic building. Throughout the process TRM worked closely with the Buffalo preservation board and SHPO to maintain the historic character of the building. The project is currently entering the permitting phase; construction of the project will be phased and is planned to begin in the summer of 2015.
