Identification of Potential Severance Damages in Retail Gasoline Properties

Synopsis:

This paper substantiates the increased vulnerability that convenience retail properties have to access degradation and the need for higher damage awards in eminent domain takings.  Not all access resolutions are "reasonable" or "convenient and adequate" as many courts have concluded.  This is the first paper of its kind that substantiates and documents the increased accessibility required by convenience retail properties, such as gas stations, convenience stores, car washes, and fast food restaurants.  These types of properties are entitled to greater compensation for damages when access or visibility is impaired through an eminent domain action.
