Chabad in the Gardens filed plans to convert an abandoned fire station in Palm Beach Gardens into a synagogue and cultural center, the Palm Beach Post reported. The fire station, at 7025 Fairway Drive, closed in 2002 when a larger station was built on Jog Road in Mirasol. Chabad purchased the one-acre parcel on which the building sits for $1.2 million five years later, and now wants to spend $400,000 to transform it into a 100-person traditional synagogue and cultural center, pending a May 3 city council review.

If approved, construction would start in June and would be completed in September. Chabad currently runs a 100-student learning center in Loehmann’s Plaza. The design of the new center will be simple and traditional, after financial difficulties compelled Chabad to scale back initial plans to add a second-story mezzanine. [Palm Beach Post]
