ST. LOUIS — An existing gas station will be demolished and a new one built at a prominent corner in south St. Louis County under a plan from the site’s new owner.
The gas station at 4504 S. Lindbergh Blvd. in Sunset Hills, at the intersection of Lindbergh and Gravois Road, has been purchased by Midwest Petroleum Co. for an undisclosed amount, a representative of the developer, Joe Feldmann of Cochran Engineering, said at a March 14 meeting of the city’s board of aldermen.
St. Louis-based convenience store chain Midwest Petroleum Co. plans to build a brick, 4,500-square-foot convenience store at the site, Feldmann said. That will double the size of the store currently at the site.
Midwest Petroleum, which is among St. Louis’ largest privately held companies, posted revenue of $380 million last year and has 445 local employees, out of 595 total employees.
