The $2.2 million project will include underground parking, the ‘first-of-its-kind’ in Atlanta.

The Shell Gas at Buckhead’s Powers Ferry Square shopping center, at 3669 Powers Ferry Road NE, will soon be demolished for the construction of a new three-level convenience store, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, and gas station.

“This will be a one-of-a-kind station for the City of Atlanta,” owner Smita Patel told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone conversation Tuesday.

“It will remain a Shell Gas Station, but will be completely demolished in March and rebuilt as a three-story complex.”

The street level will feature Dunkin Donuts and Subway, and Patel is also in talks with BMW to include a car showroom visible from the street.

The bottom level will be underground parking, and the top floor will be the offices for each business, all of which will be franchise-owned by Patel.

“This entire structure needed to be remodeled, and you have to keep up with the times. I decided to do something unique instead of keeping the same old look of gas stations,” Patel said.

Land development for the underground parking lot and mezzanine level will cost an estimated $2.2 million. Shell will close March 2016 ahead of the demolition and plans to reopen July 2016 along with all of the food and beverage options.

  1. “First of its kind” underground parking shouts to me “better allow lots of additional time in permitting with the city”.

  2. Hopefully the construction is finished before the owner goes broke so we don’t have to look at yet another abandoned construction site.

  3. Was there a typo in this story? Was it meant to say it would reopen in July of 2018? Because it’s coming along, but it’s still very much under construction.
