More gas stations will be disappearing from Vancouver because of the hot real estate market, including two in Kitsilano.
According to a report in the Globe and Mail today, Chevron Canada plans to put five stations on the west side up for sale.
The company decided to sell the five locations after marketing three others last year, including one on Georgia Street that is currently one of only two gas stations in the downtown core.
That decision is not surprising, retail experts say. In a city such as Vancouver, it just doesn’t make sense for certain kinds of low-rise retail to continue to occupy almost whole city blocks.
