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 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…

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.

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.
