Dr Rahmani Buys Selo/Shevel's Building
One of the enduring local real estate mysteries is 1251 N. Maple. A former gas station remodeled many years ago by Basile "Bill" Lagos, it has never yet had a tenant. Lagos, who also owns a few other buildings around town, didn't return calls about it.
The building is about to get its first tenant, a Subway. Corporate says it's owned by Mike and Cindy Heffner, who also have a Subway on Platt Rd. An attempt to reach the Heffners was unsuccessful.
Another vacant space is, presumably, still available on the south end of the building--though a call to the phone number in its window was unreturned.
