The Tiburon Fire Protection District has won the go-ahead to demolish its aging Paradise Drive station and replace it with a new building that better meets the needs of modern firefighting, officials say.


The town’s Design Review Board approved the $5.7-million project in a 4-0 vote March 21, with Vice Chair Bryan Chong absent.


“The old station is coming up on 65 years, which is old for a fire station,” Greg Barton of Oakland-based LCA Architects told the board.


Station 10, at 4301 Paradise Drive at the end of Trestle Glen Boulevard, was originally built in the 1960s as a two-stall firehouse for volunteer firefighters and has since been built up to about 4,000 square feet including living quarters, on-duty staff and additional fire apparatus.
