Look!: Converted Fire Station

We passed by this fire station yesterday and noticed that in place of the big fire truck doors, it has windows. A tidy garbage organization bin is out front. The building is beautifully landscaped and we spotted window treatments. Is this possibly a fire station that's been converted into a residence?..

Sure enough, turns out Fire Station 28 in Montreal was converted to residential use back in 1979. It's a beautiful building that faces Mont Royal. You can't see it in our shot up top, but check out the beautiful red-painted front door, a perfect nod to the building's previous life:
