A 1929 service station at Zang and Beckley is on the market for $340,000.

Owners Jay Song and John Chong in 2012 had plans to demolish the former Humble Oil service station and build a beer and wine store.

Neighbors rallied for preservation, but demolition seemed inevitable since the property is just outside the Lake Cliff Historic District. But then nothing happened … and nothing happened. Then a “for sale” sign appeared last week.

Listing agent Richard Kang says the owners didn’t want to deal with construction, which they previously have said includes asbestos abatement. Kang says he’s had several calls on the property and was expecting an offer Thursday.
