Future Slurpee Spot For Sunset High Students
There is nothing like seeing a huge mechanical creation tear metal to shreds.
That’s what my Monday was like outside of an abandoned Texaco at the corner of North Hampton Road and West Jefferson Boulevard. The building was being leveled to make way for a new 7-Eleven that will take the vacated lot up a notch or two.
The strangest thing about the old gas station was the inside. It look as though the owner just closed up shop and left behind everything from old display cases to ice cream signs. The interior looked pretty post-apocalyptic with the vents torn from the ceiling — copper theives — and debris covering every square inch of the floor.
Councilwoman Delia Jasso said she was thrilled that after shopping around for potential businesses, 7-Eleven was able to come in and revamp the property.
So three to four months from now expect this place to be crawling with nearby Sunset High School students, and read more about the demolition in this week’s Oak Cliff People.
