Update of Mobil gas station gets approval

Plans to demolish the Mobil gas station at the northwest corner of Maple and Telegraph in Bloomfield Township and replace it with an updated building were unanimously approved on Monday, March 25, by the Bloomfield Township Board of Trustees. Owners BP of White Lake and Bloomfield Mobil plan to combine the existing properties at 6490 and 6450 Telegraph into a single lot and construct a new 2,340-square foot building in the Hogan's Plaza. The new building will operate under extended hours, moving from 5 a.m. to midnight to a 24-hour gas station. The proposed building was recognized by board members as an improvement over the existing station, which will also remove some existing zoning variances that were previously granted to the property. The new station will include screening material to block out rooftop mechanical equipment. Landscaping includes the addition of Boston Ivy on the rear trellis of the building, in order to provide a more pleasing view from all sides. The station's existing fuel pump canopies will be retained in the front of the building. The plans were previously approved on Monday, March 4, by Bloomfield Township Planning Commission.
