2 fire stations in Eagan are for sale

If you've ever wanted to own a fire station, here's your chance.

If you've ever wanted to own a fire station, here's your chance.

The City of Eagan is seeking proposals for the reuse or redevelopment of two properties where decommissioned fire stations are located. Proposals are due by 4 p.m. on July 31.

The stations were recently decommissioned because a review found they were no longer needed, city documents show, which is why the city is looking for proposals on what could be done with the property.

Unfortunately, both buildings are one level, so they don't come with fire poles, Fire Chief Mike Scott told the Pioneer Press, noting that's a question they've been asked a lot.

Here are the details on both properties:

Fire Station No. 1

This is Fire Station No. 1, located at 3940 Rahn Road. It was the city's first station, built in 1963.

The 5,100-square-foot building is located on about a half-acre of land. The property is currently zoned public facilities, but the city expects to rezone it to limited business.

Fire Station No. 5

This is Fire Station No. 5, located at 4701 Galaxie Ave. It was built in 1988.

The 5,100-square-foot building is located on 2.73 acres. It's currently zoned as public facilities, but could also be rezoned – the city wants to know if it would work better as residential or as a mixed-use property with commercial and office space.
