Franken-firehouse: Novel mixed-use building coming to King of Prussia

The new, seven-story building will merge a storage facility operated by Cubesmart (NYSE: CUBE) and an Upper Merion fire station with emergency medical services. The structure was designed to have 98,650 square feet of storage space over six floors and 10,689 square feet on the ground floor that will be dedicated to the fire station. The hybrid concept has been tried elsewhere, but it's new to the Philadelphia area and may serve as a blueprint for similar projects in the future.  “It’s not your father’s fire department any more,” said William F. Jenaway, township supervisor.
