CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Charleston will get its first look at plans to build for a new gas station on Folly Road Thursday morning.

The gas station would replace an old gas station, a dry cleaner and a spa. Those buildings all vacant and overgrown, are near the corner of Tatum Street, across from Dukes Barbecue.

The city’s Technical Review Committee will review plans to demolish the majority of those buildings and replace them with a new Refuel gas station. The project applicant, McCormick & Associates, is proposing a new convenience store and car wash along with the gas station.

Thursday’s 9 a.m. meeting will be the first time the committee is reviewing the plans.

If the committee approves the plans, they will need to be reviewed two more times before it goes for final approval.
