The old gas station in Emory Village is destined for new life as a wine store, according to a recently filed permit application with DeKalb County. Formerly a Chevron station, the building just south of Emory University is already undergoing renovations, including the removal of underground fuel tanks, to bring a 2,000-square-foot retail space to the neighborhood. The renovation will add historic touches and generally spruce up the 65-year-old building, providing for future conversion to a restaurant, not unlike Leon's Full Service in Decatur. No word as to when patrons can begin to fuel up their Friday nights.
