Gas Station Being Demo'd Now

Huzzah! The long-abandoned city-owned gas station at the corner of Good Hope Road and 13th Street SE is finally being demolished.

No longer the future site of the District Department of Transportation, the corner is prime real estate and will hopefully get some sort of face lift soon.

Because the onramp to the 11th Street Bridges will no longer begin at this intersection, there is a great opportunity to grow the city's portion of developable land. More on that to come.
