The Clark Super 100 Service Station was located at 544 Detroit Street, at the corner of Division Street near Beakes. It opened in 1959 and closed in the late 1970s or early 1980s. The building was torn down for the construction of a three story "flatiron" style development.
The parcel is owned by Jack Epstein, a former Ann Arbor resident who now resides in Maryland.
Though small, the proposed flat iron style building - roughly a triangular shaped structure with a nose that faces the convergence of two streets, will stand out, says Marc Rueter of Rueter Associates Architects. And true flat iron structures in Ann Arbor are rare - though there is one down the street near Zingerman's Deli at Fifth and Detroit.
