Once home to city firefighters, Firehouse 2 today is Omni CRA’s headquarters. Following a top-to-bottom renewal, the Mediterranean revival building has been restored to its former stature and is once again being used for the benefit of the community.
Designed by August C. Geiger, Firehouse 2 was built in 1926 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. The building is important both in its historical architecture and cultural standing. Its location is a vital crossroads between major neighborhoods including Wynwood and Downtown.
Together with the Citizens Bank of Miami building and the Tomorrowland building, Firehouse 2 is part of a rapidly changing streetscape that promises to be a vital community gathering place. As new restaurants and businesses emerge from restored buildings and warehouses, the pedestrian-friendly streetscape is evolving into a future economic hub for South Florida—one where art, events, restaurants and technology converge.
