Sale of the former fire station at 182 Ponsonby Rd (pictured) has settled after a tender process that closed in December, but Bayleys, which handled the sale, said the buyer hadn’t been disclosed. The brigade moved out of its station on the corner of Lincoln St last May for new premises at 134 Williamson Avenue, Grey Lynn.
Also in Ponsonby, a showroom across Ponsonby Rd has been leased.
