CT Management Plans to Convert Tyler Street Fire House into Apartments

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Tyler Street Fire Station was at risk for demolition before a local developer saw it as a potential apartment building.

The Historical Commission on Monday deemed the fire station historically significant, making it eligible for Community Preservation Act funding that will support its proposed restoration.

Developer David Carver and CT Management — who built the Morningstar Apartments in the former St. Mary's Church down the street — want to convert the station into four residential units.

Carver has worked to preserve as much of the interior and exterior detail of original properties as possible while meeting functional requirements and building permits. He has done a number of historically significant properties that have undergone renovation for new uses.

"A year ago I would have likely told you that there's probably going to be an application to demolish the fire station but for a number of reasons, one more attempt was made so the [request for proposals] was issued, I think it was more toward the beginning of winter, and there was a successful bidder," City Planner CJ Hoss said to the panel.
