Rebuild of Cow Hollow fire station “going well,” says SFFD

A small fire station at 2251 Greenwich Street in Cow Hollow is undergoing a rebuild, as the old structure did not adhere to current building codes. Based on a tweet sent out by SFFD Thursday, the build appears to be “going well,” they said.

The station closed down in October of last year, and should be completed in early 2018. The total cost of the project is estimated to be $6.1 million.

In the meantime, firefighters and their vehicles have ben moved to other stations nearby. Engine 16 has been relocated to Station 51 at 218 Lincoln Blvd, and Truck 16 was relocated to Station 10 at 655 Presidio stationSFFDWestern Addition
