The BP gas station, on the corner of Central Entrance and Arlington Avenue, has been closed for quite awhile and had been sitting vacant.  That is no longer the case is the building was demolished this week.

This demolition is just the beginning.  The Pizza Hut location that had been next door has been vacated and is also expected to be demolished to make way for the construction of a new retail center.

It has been reported that this new development would also take out the UPS store and potentially the laundromat as a new development containing 25,000-30,000 square feet of retail space is constructed.

Who will occupy this new retail space has not yet been disclosed.
