Project Background

The Varsity Fire Station has reached the end of its life cycle after servicing the community for 46 years. A new fire station is needed to meet the growing needs of the community and surrounding area.

The redevelopment of the Fire Station provides the opportunity to better optimize the space as a multi-service facility. In 2019, The City plans to submit a land use re-designation application that will include provision for an affordable housing development and other services to the community.


The new facility will be built on City-owned land to the north of the existing facility at 3740 32 Ave N.W. This will allow the existing facility to remain operational on the south side of the site. Once construction of the new multi-service facility is completed, the old building will be demolished. More information will be available once the design and contractor selection processes are complete.
