Developer Equity One has closed on two more pieces of the Westwood Complex, a pair of Citgo stations on Westbard Avenue.
Rumor has it that Equity One will not renew the lease for the Citgo nearest Ridgefield Road. That is possibly the last remaining full-serve gas station in Bethesda. Closing it would be a loss in a town with large numbers of senior citizens, who rely on Citgo to check under the hood, pump gas, and fill tires.
That Citgo was also the last station with fuel in Bethesda when others ran out during a storm last summer.
There has been no public statement on the eventual fate of either property by Equity One.
