As mentioned earlier, there was also a non-backlog designation on Tuesday. It was the former Firehouse Engine Company 29 building at 160 Chambers Street, in TriBeCa. Its public hearing was back in February of 2014 and nobody spoke in opposition to designation. The structure was originally built as a residence between 1832 and 1833, and was altered by Nathaniel Bush in 1868. It served as a police precinct and then a firehouse until 1947. It underwent a commercial conversion in 1967 and since the 1980s, it has had a commercial ground floor with residential use above. Srinivasan praised it as an example of adaptive reuse come full circle.

Thorough information on this building, and its uses other than by FDNY, can be found in The Last Alarm by Mike Boucher, Gary Urbanowicz, and Fred Melhan published in 2006, page 132.
