PLANS, DESCRIPTION: Sarasota-based gas station company Atco Inc. purchased a 1,400-square-foot BP convenience store on Holmes Beach for $1.23 million. The purchase price equated to $875 per square foot.
“McCarley Oil was looking to get out of it, and it worked into our portfolio,” says Alan Elwell, president of Atco. “We own the land, the building and the gas tanks, but we lease it out to an operator.”
The company owns about 20 stores along the Gulf Coast.
Atco Inc. mortgaged the property to former owner McCarley Oil Co. Inc. for $925,000.
