^Like your picture, I saw a station in Manhattan of similar style.  The only picture I could find is the one below.  Not sure if this is the same one (this is also in Manhattan) that I recall, but if not, it is very close to the image I had in mind.  Shows what can be done if a little creativity is applied.  Unfortunately, that is in short supply in Jacksonville  :(

^Those were in Jax too. That's what gas stations used to look like 80 years ago. We tore our gas stations like that down decades ago.

I seriously doubt Daily's will build anything like that. The most "urban" thing they've done around here is the gas station off Atlantic in San Marco. Even that would be a horrible use of a full or half downtown city block.

It's good to see folks getting uppity over a gas station.  Things are returning to normal.  :)
