CP: A Gas Station Grows Near H Street

Housing Complex has the latest on that pesky gas station coming to 14th & Maryland. The developer has sought for sometime to build a gas station at that location (which was previously a used car lot). The community has pushed back hard against the idea, even launching a major campaign against it in 2008. The developers have not been the best of neighbors over the past few years, freely allowing a very noticeable homeless encampment to develop.
Recently, however, the developers obtained permits to build their station (or actually to renovate what is apparently an existing one) on that site. It may not be the most exciting use of the site, but it looks like we're stuck with it.
