The West Gulf Sales and Service Station was built in the late 1940s on what had previously been vacant land.

I'm not sure when the service station shut down. It was converted to a photography studio at some point. Since , it has housed the restaurant Vin Rouge.

On a site plan filed in 2008 by Ninth Street North developer Glenn Dickson, 2000-2010 Hillsborough was noted at "Future Phase" - occurring, presumably, sometime after long-delayed Phase II of the Ninth St. North development.
