Officials from the national restaurant chain are looking at the vacant property next to the new GetGo gas station.
Rumors are swirling around town about the future of the vacant “outlot” property next to the new GetGo gas station. On Wednesday, the Detroit Avenue Chow Line posted on its Facebook page that the national chain Bob Evens was considering the property for a new restaurant. Cleveland.com followed suit. City officials confirmed that representatives from Bob Evans have contacted city hall, but added that no deal has been reached with Giant Eagle, the owner of the property. “We know that they are interested in the site,” said Dru Siley, the city’s director of planning and development. “And we expect to find out in the next month or so who is likely to pursue that property.” The .9-acre property next to the new GetGo gas station on Detroit Avenue…

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.

New gas station at the corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue on Valentine's Day.
The GetGo gas station at Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue is expected to open on Valentine's Day. 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 …

Saturday, September 1, 2012
The former Giant Eagle store at the corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue will be torn down to make way for a new GetGo gas station.
The demolition permits have been submitted and approved. The bulldozers are standing by. The demolition of the former Giant Eagle grocery store at the corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue is set to begin. The abandoned structure — a grocery store that’s gone by a few names in its history — is gutted and cleared out. Demolition is expected to begin next week. Earlier this year, the plans were approved for a new GetGo, across the street from the grocery store chain's current location. 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 has been vacant since 2007, when Giant Eagle finished its move …

City’s architectural board of review asks the company to modify its plans.
Clarification: The proposal for GetGo's signs were deferred until the next architectural board of review meeting. A new GetGo gas station is coming to the corner of Detroit Avenue and Bunts Road, however the signs that the company proposed are not. A company representing the gas station — owned by Pennsylvania-based Giant Eagle — presented plans for three new signs at the city’s architectural board of review Thursday night. Board members were less than enthusiastic, taking particular issue with the proposed large digital sign facing Detroit Avenue. “I don’t like this at all,” said board member Michael Fleenor. “Perhaps a smaller sign would be OK. The monument sign is enormous.” George Dragon, of Cicogna Electric and Sign Co., pointed out …

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 …
