The city of Delaware completed the purchase of the former American Freight retail and corporate headquarters at 680 Sunbury Road in Delaware, Ohio, this past week according to the Delaware County Auditor’s office.
The city paid $3,995,000 for the parcel which is expected to become the city’s fifth fire station. The city will repurpose and renovate the current space rather than having to build an entirely new station. According to the Delaware Gazette story from about a month ago, that is estimated to save the city $13,000,000.
The station is expected to be completed in late 2023.
