The City is trying to find a new use for a former downtown fire station, built in the 1950s. There was a public open house meeting on August 8 to gather ideas from the community. It's kind of in a dead zone, south of the Mall. Whatever happens to it, I hope it becomes something that can attract more foot traffic and hopefully spur new development around it.

Development ideas sought for downtown Kalamazoo fire station

KALAMAZOO, MI -- The city of Kalamazoo is seeking the public's help to decide what to do with a 60-year-old former fire station downtown. Built in 1957, the former Fire Station No. 1 at 116 W. Cedar St. was used as the fire marshal's office and a Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety training facility until it was transferred to the city's Brownfield Redevelopment Authority. Residents can share their redevelopment ideas at a public meeting from 5:30-7 p.m. Aug. 8 in the downtown branch of the Kalamazoo Public Library...
The property looks like it needs much work:
