Want to buy a fire station? The city is selling one

City Council is expected to consider auctioning about 25 properties it no longer uses, including the old fire station No. 26 at Westmoreland and Jefferson built in 1945. The city expects to raise about $3.3 million through the auction.

In other real estate and preservation news, the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League will unveil its annual architecture at risk list Monday, June 12. No. 1 on the list is the former Humble Oil Station at Beckley and Zang, which was built in 1929.

Developers plan to demolish it to make way for a discount beer-and-wine store.

    I’m not likely to visit a generic discount beer and wine store. But if they remodeled that building, to make it an interesting place to visit, I’d go out of my way to shop there.
