New Central Fire Hall – 1969

From the Windsor Star – December 27, 1969:

    TAKING SHAPE – Windsor’s new central fire station is rapidly taking shape. The new, $670,000 building is on Goyeau St. at Elliott St. E. Scheduled for completion next spring, the new hall will replace the present 41-year-old fire department headquarters station on Pitt St. E. The new station will house the department’s administrative and communications offices, as well as five pieces of fire apparatus. Contractors are now working on the interior.

The building designed by William Crosbie, still stands and is still in use today as fire headquarters. This building replaced the one we looked at on Friday after 41 years. This building, is now 44 years old. So this building has now been around and in service longer than Albert Lothian’s building on Pitt Street.
