The city engaged a third-party engineer to review and comment on stucco cracking at the existing fire station and the deep soil mixing excavation containment system design at the construction site, the resolution continues.
Both the city and the developer wish to temporarily relocate Fire Station No. 4 to temporary facilities within Southside Park through the mass excavation work and construction of 1 Southside Park.
Fire Station No. 4 would be temporary relocated into a 5,500 square foot space within Southside Park itself, using modular construction, an attachment shows.
The relocation would expedite construction of the project, including the delivery of the new fire station, the resolution said.
A commission vote to approve the temporary station is expected March 9.
ODP Architects is the architect of record for the temporary fire station, as well as the new 64-story tower.
