A week after the Taco Bell was approved for demolition, the city issued permits for Circle K to build a gas station and convenience store on the site at Philips Highway and Emerson Street.
The city issued permits Sept. 27 for Venture Construction Co. of Norcross, Georgia, to build a gas station and convenience store at a cost of $2.1 million.
Circle K will build a 5,200-square-foot convenience store, 4,608-square-foot fuel canopy with seven pumps and a trash enclosure on the 1½-acre site at 3649 Philips Highway.
The city issued a permit Sept 19 for Venture Construction to demolish the closed Taco Bell at a cost of $65,000. The fast-food restaurant was built in 1987.
RDC of Reston, Virginia, is the architect. Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc. is the civil engineer.
The pending permits say the convenience store will sell beer and wine for off-site consumption and operate 24 hours a day.
