Architecture in Fort Worth

Fire Station No. 1 

215 Commerce St. - 1907; restored 1982 (DD)


This building was designed by Sanguinet & Staats and built by Samuel A. Tomlinson. This fire station served the northern part of Downtown until 1980, when restoration began. The building has wonderful brick work on its facade. The building was incorporated into the City Center Development, which has later been folded into Sundance Square. Access into the building is achieved through the Sundance Square Parking Garage.  The contractor for the restoration was Linbeck Construction.
