VT Gas Station Demolished, Will Be Retail Complex

Published Oct. 5, 2022

A former service station and auto repair shop at 67 Pleasant St. at the foot of Hartland Hill Road at the eastern gateway to Woodstock Village, VT, is being demolished to make way for a new, 2,440-square foot building and adjoining 900-square foot service annex.

The new complex will eventually house four as-yet-undisclosed retail operations, according to paperwork filed with the Village of Woodstock by the project developer, Eva Veson of Pleasant Garage LLC.

The Woodstock Village Design Review and Development Review Boards gave their unanimous approvals to the project as presented by Veson and Pleasant Garage LLC’s architect Belinda Watt, last spring. Demolition of the one-time Gulf service station commenced in September, with the stripping of recyclable building materials such as the siding from the exterior of the old structure. Later in the month, a crew began toppling the old building using an excavator.

The new building, which will house the proposed retail outlets, will consist of a 30-by-82-foot gabled structure located parallel to Pleasant Street at the northeast corner of the one-third-of-an-acre site. A flat-roofed service annex at the southeast corner of the lot will measure 22 feet by 41 feet. The building will be offset by an exterior courtyard covering just over 1,600 square feet.
