Demolition permit sought for one of downtown Bethesda's last gas stations
The bank is going to place a small bank structure on this extremely valuable piece of property steps from the Bethesda Metro station, hardly an example of smart growth or new urbanism.
Worst of all, the loss of this gas station will leave only 2 Liberty stations and the expensive Exxon at Old Georgetown Road and Auburn Avenue. To get a sense of the potential impact on public safety and transportation, consider that this Shell station alone sold out of gas during two different weather events in the last few years.
