Hey , I didn’t say all the Rescues in their own quarters, each Rescue will have their old rig as their own fully equipped spare , yes R-2, 3 and 5 will be able to house in their own quarters and R-1& 4 are looking for off site storage space. But the idea of having a spare read to go is awesome , no more 4+ hour change overs. Also the main idea behind R-6 , as a “reserve rescue “ not a spare , will no long be needed. I’m the event of any major incident any of the full equipped spare can be put in service in a very short Reasonable amount of time.  Not sure about this as of yet , but the Pierce may also be keep as a spare , just not full equipped. The jury is still out as far as keeping the Pierce
  BTW, The "OUTSTANDING" Pierce was being used by R5 yesterday afternoon. ;)

There had been talk of a new quarters for R1.  Not sure how far it’s gotten.
 Also a developer was supposed to be trying to buy the property that e207/L110 and the 84pct with a new firehouse supposed to be built.

Its very sad that it's been 3yrs + since they broke ground for the
new Rescue 2 quarters.  My town broke ground for a new 3 bay two
story fire station #9  in early November 2018. On target to be completed
Dec 2019. Opened by end of Jan 2020.

If you have ever lived in New York City or any other major city like it you would understand the reason things take so long. There's not any one item you can point your finger at but there are many contribute factors. These factors range from political climate, unions, traffic, etc. Each 1 adds its own set of problems to the equation.

Whereabouts might that town be?  Most unlikely to be in the NorthEast US.

Obviously it's prevalent in the Northeast but it's certainly not restricted to that area. It extends down the entire East Coast and thru the Midwest and of course the Pacific Coast have their own problems getting things done quickly because of all the environmental regulations projects have to jump thru!

It's going to take something to happen to get the Hudson yards firehouse.

Cary, North Carolina- I understand there are many possible delays. I also lived in New York(Bronx and Long Island for 44+ yrs). But I would think once they break ground
they should have all enviromental and any other approvals in place etc. Yes it New York so I guess I shouldn't expect much better.

It is interesting to compare.  There are many factors which can complicate a construction project, beyond political, labor and regulatory issues.

The site:

Is it large compared to the building or tight – that will affect the ability to place equipment and materials.
Did the site need clearing or did a previous building need to be demolished?
Did utilities have to be brought in?
Is the site on a corner of wide streets or mid-block on a narrow one-way street?

The building:

Is the building on a slab, or pilings, or does it have a basement?  Pitched roof or flat roof?
Is it a simple use – storage? or multi-use – storage and dormitory?  or complex use – storage, dormitory, assembly, office, and training facilities?
Is the architecture simple, straight lines and rectangles, or complex with oblique angles, terraces, setbacks, and atria?
Is it sprinklered?

Structural:

Snow loads, wind loads, cold winters, hot summers, frost line, solar panels, antenna towers?
Is it a fueling station?
Code and zoning requirements and restrictions?
Energy conservation rules?
Does construction get halted by cold weather?

Two buildings could start out as similar and then turn out to be very different when the many variables are considered.
