Speedway gas station planned for long-vacant Marathon at Maple and Miller

The property - which houses a shuttered 1,365-square-foot gas station on about 1.4 acres - was sold in May from Marathon Petroleum Company LP to Speedway LLC, according to city documents.
The city lists the state equalized value at $344,100 in 2010, making the market value $688,200.
Now, Speedway has submitted site plans to the city of Ann Arbor to demolish the existing building, which was built in 1962, and construct a 3,968-square-foot gas station and convenience store. The plans also include a canopy over the pump island and 18 parking spaces.
Ohio-based Speedway LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Marathon Petroleum Company, and all Speedway locations are corporately operated.
A spokesperson with Speedway could not be reached for comment regarding the site plans.
Other developments at the Maple and Miller intersection include the 2,200-square-foot redeveloped building on the southwest corner, which now houses an under-construction Subway sandwich shop.
Jim Chaconas, a commercial real estate broker who markets the building, said a Speedway would be a nice addition to the intersection, especially with Skyline High School just a mile down the road.
There are eight Speedway locations in Washtenaw County. There is a location a few miles south of the Maple and Miller intersection on West Stadium Boulevard.
