If you're looking for something truly unique, this old firehouse on Superior Street is worth checking out. It no longer houses a fire truck and emergency equipment, but instead has become a place to store scrap metal and other junk. However, it's got tons of potential and would be a great candidate for a complete makeover by a local architect. According to the listing, the firehouse was constructed in 1879, making this a very old structure in terms of Chicago buildings. The listing offers more measurements and zoning details. There's really a lot that can be done with these kinds of buildings. Other old firehouses around the North Side have been converted into event spaces, community art centers and of course, single family homes.
