Former Mason Square Fire StationOld Hill/McKnight Neighborhoods
Project Location: Old Hill / McKnight Neighborhoods
Property Owners: City of Springfield
This commercial hub serves four urban neighborhoods along the State Street corridor. The historic and vacant fire station located in the center of Mason Square is owned by the City of Springfield.
The Fire Station building has been vacant for nearly 20 years despite numerous attempts by the City to redevelop it. The property sits in the center of the State Street Improvement area, which has undergone $18 million in improvements.
The property was made available in a Request for Proposals basis along with Indian Motocycle A & B buildings. American International College was selected as preferred developer and continues to examine redevelopment scenarios.
Mayor Domenic J. Sarno announced the preferred developer designation of American International College for the redevelopment of Indian Motocycle A, Indian Motocycle B, and Mason Square Fire Station properties. The AIC proposal outlines over $13 million in investment in rehabilitating the vacant historic properties and upgrading the existing occupied property.
