RaceTrac taking Wells Fargo site in Baymeadows

Company says it hopes to being construction by the middle of 2019.

RaceTrac Petroleum Inc. said it hopes to start construction by the middle of 2019 for completion by year-end on a 5,400-square-foot gas station and convenience store at 8715 Baymeadows Road, the site of a closed Wells Fargo bank branch. 

The city is reviewing a permit application for Venture Construction Co. to build the project on 1.42 acres at a cost of $1.2 million for the building, canopy and dumpster enclosure. RaceTrac applied for a certificate of use for the site. 

It’s at least the fourth new RaceTrac under construction or in planning in Jacksonville. RaceTrac operates at least 17 stores in Northeast Florida.

A spokeswoman said it was one of the new RaceTrac prototypes that features a Swirl World frozen dessert station and a large coffee area.

The stores also have more seating, free Wi-Fi and more lighting.

RaceTrac said it expects to open two Jacksonville prototype locations at 5004 Gate Parkway and 2009 Mayport Road by year-end.
