History

Before the Field Museum, the Adler Planetarium, the Wrigley Building, or Wrigley Field, Chicago built a Firehouse for Engine Company 70. The original building included high ceilings, white glazed brick, and 4 horse stables. For 105 years, Engine Company 70 was an integral part of the neighborhood.Firehouse-Community

 




On our block, old-timers share their fond memories; how during block parties the firemen would open up the hydrants for the kids to play, how the firemen let the neighborhood kids reach down into an icebox to grab a free soda, and how everyone felt safe with the firemen at the end of the block.

RENOVATION

Based upon our distinctive renovation plan, the City of Chicago chose Firehouse Studios as the most worthy buyer and caretaker of the building.

We've created a fully-equipped, versatile workspace while keeping the building’s unique architectural touches. The firehouse features beautiful antique doors and lighting, carefully renovated to pristine condition. The result: a building to last another hundred years, a wonderful space to work and play.
