Watts firefighters finally get a new home

January 01, 2007 |

The 15,200-sf Fire Station #65 in the Watts neighborhood near Los Angeles replaces an outdated 1930s facility and includes living and support space for a crew of 17. Designed by gkkworks, Irvine, Calif., the two-story, $4.3 million facility includes a lobby, offices, multipurpose room, conference room, kitchen, and dining rooms on the first floor, and dormitory, locker, and shower facilities on the second floor. The first-floor conference room is accessible to the public through a lobby area at the front entrance, part of a city program that encourages public use of city buildings.
