Wawa Florida LLC paid $3 million for about 1.9 acres at northeast University Boulevard North and Arlington Road to build a gas station and convenience store.

Wawa bought the site from six sellers who each owned parcels that the company assembled for the deal.

Wawa Florida LLC of Orlando executed the deeds March 31 and recorded them April 1 with the Duval County Clerk of Courts.

Wawa intends to demolish the buildings on the site to develop the gas station and convenience store with 16 fueling stations.

The city is reviewing permit applications for construction of a 6,202-square-foot building and 7,150-square-foot canopy at a total construction cost of almost $1.1 million.

The address is 1331 University Blvd.
