ADRIAN, MI (Toledo News Now) -

What has been an eyesore for years in downtown Adrian could soon be the site of a new business.

The city has received a grant to demolish an abandoned gas station at the intersection of Front Street and Main Street in Adrian. City leaders say the property has been abandoned for years, and his hurting the area.

"When you have buildings that are not in use and look as bad as this one does, it impacts the neighborhood in a negative way and as one of the gateways to the downtown, the first thing people see when they're coming from the north is this building," said Chris Miller with the Adrian Downtown Development Authority.

The city plans to demolish the building and remove contaminated soil under the former gas station. Once the work is done, the property will be ready for a new building and a new business.
