Eastham Exxon Closed For Good


Published:

The Eastham Exxon Servicenter (7100 Wisconsin Ave.) is closed for good as crews have been on-site this week preparing for a 145-unit apartment project. The gas station, in Bethesda since 1929, sold gas for the last time on Sept. 30. But general manager R. Steven Embrey had hoped to keep the auto repair shop open for longer, at least until developer Washington Property Company got final approval to proceed with construction. Washington Property Company Senior Vice President Daryl South told The Gazette last month that construction should start in 18 to 24 months. The developer is seeking a zoning amendment to build a taller building than the Bethesda Central Business District Master Plan allows.
