The new 16-pump station opened earlier this month at the corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue. That’s left a vacant gas station at Manor Park Avenue.
The new GetGo gas station at the corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue has left a void across the street. The former gas station has been vacant for a couple weeks. Located at the corner of Manor Park and Detroit avenues, the future of the property isn’t certain. The land and building at 14206 Detroit Avenue are valued at $277,000, according to the Cuyahoga County Auditor’s Office. According to the property records, Ralph Miller bought the property from the Sun Oil Co. for $114,500 in 1995. He’s owned it since. We thought we’d ask what you’d like to see happen to the property. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

The plans for the property at the busy intersection call for a 5,600-square-foot brick building, with 16 pumps.
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…

Updated proposal shows more green space.
The city’s board of architectural review is set to discuss Giant Eagle’s plan to plant a GetGo gas station at the southwest corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue. Officials from the Pittsburgh-based grocer are expected to present drawings to the board on Thursday. At the encouragement of the city, the new drawings show a lot more green space. This won’t be the first time the issue has come before the board. Last month, developers presented initial plans at a special work session meeting at Lakewood City Hall. And a few weeks later, a crowd of nearly 50 people attended a forum to discuss the issue. Some in attendance opposed the project, while some neighbors showed support for the development. Earlier this year, Giant Eagle informed the …

A couple fliers circulating in the neighborhood of the proposed new Get Go gas station at the southwest corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue. Public meeting set for Wednesday.
There are a couple pieces of literature circulating around the neighborhood of the proposed new Get Go gas station at the southwest corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue. The first — stuck to doors and left on porches — cautions residents about the possible negative effects of a gas station. The flier warns falling property values, pollution, increased traffic and undesirable consequences on local business. This comes after Giant Eagle’s proposal earlier this month to build a 5,600-square-foot brick building, with multiple gas pumps, at the property that it once owned. The city responded with a letter of its own — and an invitation to discuss the issue further, at a meeting set to take place at Lakewood City Hall at 6 p.m. March 28. …
