Between 2010 and 2011, the Barton Blvd. Sunoco experienced an amazing transformation. The first phase of the project included complete exterior painting of both the building and the canopy covering the gas pumps, as well as the installation of a faux roof line over the structure's flat-top roof. The project's second phase provided for a re-sealing of the parking lot, in addition to construction of a concrete stucco screen designed to hide the City's lift station. In 2011, the Barton Blvd. Sunoco garnered the Redevelopment Agency's inaugural Facade Improvement Project of the Year award.
