More notes

• ​RaceTrac Petroleum Inc. bought a closed bank branch property at 8715 Baymeadows Road for development of a gas station and convenience store. Atlanta-based RaceTrac bought the site from Wells Fargo Bank for $1.6 million. RaceTrac said previously it hopes to start construction by the middle of 2019 for completion by year-end on a 5,400-square-foot prototype on 1.42 acres. The city is reviewing a permit application for the $1.2 million construction project.

• ​RaceTrac Petroleum also paid $1.25 million for 3.18 acres in Arlington at Fort Caroline Road and Business Drive. Buck Business Park LLC sold the property to RaceTrac on Dec. 5. RaceTrac plans to build a 5,500-square-foot store. Jason Ryals and Katherine Goodwin of Colliers International represented RaceTrac.

Circle K applied to the city for a $5.55 million project to rebuild at Girvin Road and Atlantic Boulevards in East Arlington. Circle K proposes to build a 5,314-square-foot convenience store on 3 acres at 12743 Atlantic Blvd. It also proposes a 1,489-square-foot car wash. Woolverton of Orlando is the engineer. The developer is Circle K’s South Atlantic division in Waycross, Georgia.

• ​Valvoline Instant Oil Change wants to develop a 1,660-square-foot location on just under an acre at 8647 Blanding Blvd., north of Clay County.  The city issued concurrency reservation and mobility fee calculation certificates for the project. No fee was calculated for the traffic impact because the facility would replace a full-service car wash.
