A lot of activity at the old Suncoco Station today. Any word on who bought it or what is going in?

Why no! Guess I'd better check it out. Thanks for the tip!

Just drove in the past hour, multiple dumpster there, a frontloader and entrances were blocked by cones.

I checked with Wayne Pimental at Public Works. They are removing the tanks, the lifts and a couple of other things – things that would need to be done before any sale – but it has not been sold or rented.
