so why would exxon or brothers bid on it? just confused

I don't know that they did. As far as I know, the guy that had it under contract before the current group intended a non-gas station redevelopment as well. I think there was another contract on the property also, but this is a <7,000sf site. I just don't see how you do a gas station on something that small.

I agree especially when there are big gas stations a few blocks away. wasnt the building behind this property for lease recently? could be a combined project

Seems far fetched they would attempt to squeeze in a gas station in that lot.

I am not a zoning expert, but I recall that the new Sterling Market/Shell station off Tchoup even needed some sort of approval. I couldn't imagine this not needing approval as well.

yeah that did for sure so this wouldnt happen unless its somehow grandfathered.. but since it hasnt been activing selling gas i dont think it could be... a convenience store isnt the same as a gas station.. this building is one of the worst spots on magazine so seeing it upgraded would be great
