Buc-ee’s, the Texas-based convenience store, submitted site engineering plans to the St. Johns River Water Management District for development of its 13.71-acre site at 655 World Commerce Parkway southwest of the Interstate 95 and International Golf Parkway interchange.

Plans prepared by Buc-ee’s consultant engineer England-Thims & Miller Inc. indicate a 53,254-square-foot, single-story building with 104 fueling stations and 392 parking spaces.

In May, Buc-ee’s revised its plans with St. Johns County, reducing the number of fuel pumps from 120 to 104 and parking from 417 to 392.  The company also shifted the front entrance to face World Commerce Center Parkway and relocated the fuel canopies to the sides of the building.

Buc-ee’s next step with the county is to submit commercial construction plans, assuming the company does not seek variances not approved by current zoning. That will be followed by submitting the building permit.
