Don’t look now, but the construction of the new GetGo gas station on Detroit Avenue and Bunts Road is almost finished.
The plans for the gas station at the busy intersection call for a 5,600-square-foot brick building, with eight fueling stations (16 pumps).
The GetGo station — unlike the Pennsylvania-based company’s typical gas station — will offer a few grocery items, prepared foods, a patio and a Wi-Fi café.
The site will also feature bio-retention landscaping, helping to alleviate the city’s storm water management issues, a move lauded by city officials.
The project didn’t come without criticism from neighbors.
Giant Eagle sold its property across the street at 14013 Detroit Avenue to Urban Active in 2007. However, plans at the site to build a workout facility never came to fruition.
The building had been vacant since 2007, when Giant Eagle finished its move across the street to 14100 Detroit Avenue.
It was demolished in September.
