Indianapolis Station 7 firefighters moved into their new station in the St. Joseph/Chatham Arch areas in late 2015.
The station is home to Engine 7, Ladder 7 (a tractor-drawn aerial), Tactical 7 (for water rescue and heavy rescue duties, cross-staffed by Engine and Ladder crews), Squad 7, the safety office and shift commander.
Built on the north side of downtown, the station borders a historic and funky neighborhood comprising late 1800s commercial buildings, row houses, and Civil War-era cottages.
The station features glass overhead doors, transoms, and clerestory windows that lighten the masonry facades, provide the apparatus bays with natural light, and create transparency and illumination at night.
Facades include textured masonry units, composite metal panels and glass storefronts.
