An Oakland-based chef and restaurateur is close to closing escrow on the purchase of the former City of Oakland Fire Station No. 14 at 3455 Champion Street, around the corner from MacArthur Boulevard.
And as proposed, Dominica Rice-Cisneros (think Cosecha Café) is planning to convert the Diamond District building into a 4,900-square-foot restaurant dubbed “Bombera Bar & Grill,” with a 600-square-foot patio out front.
It’s thought that the restaurant will be a state of the art facility that will even embrace the latest developments in restaurant software.

On the market since 2011, a previous deal to sell the building to Jack Stewart, the owner of Aunt Mary’s Café in Temescal, fell through.
But Rice-Cisneros is pushing forward with her plans for the site which could be approved by the City of Oakland early next month.
