Indy Firehouse No.
                              29The owner of the former Indianapolis Firehouse No. 29 at 2302 Shelby St. has put the property up for sale with an asking price of $175,000. The current owner, a car collector who made good use of the garage space, lived in the structure for 16 years before marrying and buying another home, said listing agent Mary Ellen Magee with F.C. Tucker Co. The firehouse was built in the early 1900s, she said, back when horses pulled firefighting equipment. She's marketing the space as a live-work opportunity. It has 3,900 square feet and three large overhead doors on the main level and a remodeled loft-style living space on the second. The property, which is zoned commercial, sits on one-fourth of an acre just a block west of the Raymond Street interchange with Interstate 65. The listing is here.

  • I believe that is the station where they had to cut a hole in the back wall of the bay to accomodate the new snorkel truck. The bucket of which hung over the kitchen table. You did forget the most important any guy would ask, does it come with the fire pole?
  • Fire pole
    Yes, it does come complete with original fire pole!
  • Two!
    Reading the full listing on the BLC (mibor.com), it has TWO firepoles, his and hers, of course. :)

    Nice post.
  • You should get a commission
    Nice post, but seems like a realtor description page more than anything. I hope you are getting a commission for this post should it sells.

  1. "bike lanes, specialized lighting, decorative signage, public art, grass medians, trees and rain gardens" These are all nice things to have, but can we freaking get the hundreds of potholes all over the city fixed first?!?!?!!?!?!

  2. When a criminal with multiple prior convictions serves five days of a one year sentence and later kills a police officer with a weapon illegally in his posession, residents of Boone County need to pay a tax to drive to work... PERFECT Progressive logic.. If, on the other hand, a fund were to be set up to build more prisons and hire more guards to keep the known criminals off the streets, I'd be the first to contribute.

  3. Not a word about how much the taxpayers will be ripped off on this deal. Crime spirals out of control and the the social problems that cause it go unheeded by an administration that does not give a rats behind about the welfare of our citizens. There is no money for police or plowing snow (remember last winter) or or or or, but spend on a sports complex, and the cash flows out of the taxpayers pockets. This city is SICK

  4. Sounds like a competitor just wanted to cause a problem. I would think as long as they are not "selling" the alcohol to the residents it is no different than if I serve wine to dinner guests. With all the violent crime happening I would think they should turn their attention to real criminals. Let these older residents enjoy what pleasures they can. Then again those boozed up residents may pose a danger to society.

  5. Where did the money go from the 2007 Income tax increase for public safety that the Mayor used to stir opposition and win the election and then failed to repeal (although he promised he would when he was running for election)? Where did the money go from the water utility sale? Where did the money go from the parking meter deal? Why does the money have all these funds for TIF deals and redevelopment of Mass avenue, and subsidy for luxury high rises, parking garages in Broad Ripple, and granola chain grocery stores but can not find the money to take care of public safety. Commuters shouldn't have to pay the tax of failed leadership in Marion County by leaders that commuters have no say in electing. Taxation without representation.
