Floating Fire Station Closer to Reality on San Francisco’s Bay

The conceptual plans for a floating expansion of San Francisco’s historic Fire Station 35 at Pier 22 ½, which was built back in 1915, have been detailed and newly rendered.

The proposed 16,400-square-foot structure would accommodate a third fire boat; new rescue watercraft, jet skis and a dive boat; men’s and women’s locker rooms, a dorm with 26 beds and officer quarters; and direct ambulance access to the back of fire station for transfers of those who are injured.

As envisioned, the floating station will be assembled on a barge docked at Treasure Island and transported across the bay.

And if all goes as planned, the new floating station will be delivered and operational in early 2021 while the historic fire station building will continue to operate and house Engine Company #35.
