UNIVERSITY CITY, MO. — Kwame Building Group has completed construction of the new $3 million Firehouse #1 at Vernon and Westgate Avenues in University City, located about 10 miles west of downtown St. Louis. The new 17,000-square-foot, two-story building replaces the original Firehouse #1, which was more than 100 years old. The new facility features five fire engine bays, a training room and administrative offices on the first floor, with a workout room on the mezzanine. Living quarters on the second floor include 10 bedrooms with 30 beds, a full kitchen and an outdoor deck. The project was funded in part by a $2.6 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant, and University City funded the remaining balance. St. Louis Archimages was the architect.
