Midtown Shell to be razed, rebuilt

The facilities home to the Shell gas station and Daily's retail store located at 1702 West End Ave. in Midtown will be demolished within the next few days and be replaced with updated infrastructure, including a Twice Daily.  

Tri Star Energy LLC, the headquarters for which are located in North Nashville, operates the facilities. Charlton Bell, TriStar's vice president of facilities, said Nashville-based Shaub Construction Co. will serve as the general contractor for the rebuild.

Of note, Alex S. Palmer & Company is undertaking its West End Summit project on land fronting West End Avenue and located across 17th from the station. Palmer & Co. officials are on record as saying they are searching for a site near WES and on which they can develop another office building.
