The Firehouse in Downtown Frederick is the epitome of a modern masterpiece. The building located at 12 West Church Street in the heart of Downtown Frederick was originally constructed as a firehouse in the mid-1800’s. Ruppert Properties purchased it last year and refurbished it into a modern commercial office building while maintaining its historic charm and authentic character. Today it offers unique office suites for lease with modern amenities in a premier Downtown Frederick location.


Fitzgerald Realty Group, Inc. was pleased to be among several members of the building team in attendance. Building team attendees include Seamus Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President; Stephany Spanier, Assistant to the President of Fitzgerald Realty Group, Inc.; Brandon Cannon, Asset Manager of Ruppert Properties; Jim Smariga of Waynesboro Construction, General Contractor for the renovation; and Abby Doseff of Archive Design Services, the project Architect.
