I was serendipitously in sync with a Tales of Two Cities blog reader this afternoon. While driving through Town Center I noticed that the Exxon station at the corner of Banneker Road and Little Patuxent Parkway looked abandoned.
Turns out that it was and it looks like the last occupants left in some haste.
“I think last weekend was it.”
I saw two guys sitting in front of the Banneker Station firehouse across the street so I decided to if they knew what was going on.
“There were some executive type guys checking things out over there the other day.”
No doubt. According to the state tax records, the property is owned by the Exxon Mobil Corporation. Given the scarcity of available sites for a gas station in Town Center, I don’t suspect it will be long before the place opens again under new management.
It could use a bit of cleaning up too.
And, lo and behold, upon my return to the office I saw that Anon 1:46 PM had asked about this very thing in my previous post.
