There’s a new look coming to Gate Petroleum Co. gas stations and convenience stores near you.

That is, if there’s a new store coming near you.

The company is updating the exterior design and making its new facilities more energy efficient and environmentally conscious, said Gate spokeswoman Becky Hamilton.

The architectural design for the new store at Forest and Park streets in Brooklyn will be presented today to the Downtown Development Review Board for conceptual approval.

The 6,401-square-foot store, along with a canopy over fuel pumps, a carwash, outdoor seating and 26 parking spaces is shown on the plan for the 2-acre site.

Hamilton said the store will be equipped with energy-efficient lighting and landscaped with “Florida-friendly” plants to reduce the amount of irrigation needed.

A new look for Gate also is being designed for stores in Nocatee and West Jacksonville.

“We want something that fits the area. We want to do the best for all the communities we serve,” Hamilton said.

The review board meets at 2 p.m. today in the Lynwood Roberts Room at City Hall.
