FireStationThe Newton Tab reports that a developer has bought the old Engine 6 firehouse in Waban and will be building three luxury condos there.

The Engine 6 property was at the center of a contentious fight this past year.  MetroWest and Pine Street Inn had teamed up on a plan to build housing for the chronically homeless in the Engine 6 site.   After very vocal objections from many of the Waban neighbors at two public meetings, the mayor pulled the plug on the city’s $1.4 million share of the project’s budget last June.
