Work was cited on the tear-down of a West Ashley Hess gas station earlier this month because officials did not get a needed city of Charleston removal permit.
Edye Graves, deputy building officer, said a stop-work order was issued. The company was working to “de-brand” the station she said, because it was not renewing its lease.
Officials paid a double fee of $210 to get the needed permit, she said, twice the normal rate of $105.
The station is at the corner of St. Andrews Boulevard and Sycamore Avenue.
