Work will soon begin on the expanded Shell gas station at the corner of NE 82nd and NE Glisan. The former Pizza Hut lot has been combined with with the existing gas station to form a massive single property, 611 NE 82nd Ave.
Building permits are already in review for construction of a “new convenience store with walk-in coolers and freezer, restrooms, kitchen.” Early Assistance documents were submitted when the address had been 515 NE 82nd Ave and indicated all structures, on the combined properties, would be replaced. “Scope of work includes removal of existing convenience store, fuel canopy, fuel dispenser islands and restaurant. Construction of a new convenience store, fuel canopy and 4 fuel dispenser islands, landscaping, curbs and paving. Existing underground storage tanks to remain.”
The Size of the new lot would allow for a phased construction schedule and it would be possible for the gas station to remain open during construction. However the actual project plans are not publicly known at this point. When done, this will change the appearance of the intersection, hopefully for the better.
