Situated southwest of the Genesee Ave / N. Torrey Pines Rd intersection, the new Fire Station will be positioned on a ~1-acre lot. The building, which will be two stories tall and have over 10,500 square feet of area, will be housed within SDFD’s Battalion 5. It will have three apparatus bays; sleeping rooms for nine personnel; a firefighter’s office; the battalion chief’s office; an exercise room; a kitchen; a ready room; and on-site parking.The proposed improvements to N. Torrey Pines Rd will include utility work, median realignment, and signal modifications to allow for northbound and southbound entrance and egress for fire apparatuses. Latitude 33 prepared feasibility exhibits for site and building design, grading, improvements, utilities, street signals, median modifications, and other facets of the unique and challenging redevelopment. The project broke ground October 2022 and is expected to be completed Mid-2024.
