Developers hope to build a Wawa gas station and convenience store on what is now a parking lot near College Park’s Ikea store on Baltimore Avenue, according to documents recently filed with county planning officials. Last week, Washington D.C., based developer Roadside Development filed a detailed site plan application for review and approval by the Prince George’s County Planning Board. The plan calls for the construction of a 4,740 square-foot gas station retail facility on 1.4 acres near Baltimore Avenue.
A map shows the relative location of the planned Wawa near Ikea Circle. According to the documents, the facility is planned for the southeast corner of the circle at the intersection of Ikea Way and Ikea Boulevard, to be more precise.
The Wawa, if approved, would have some familiar company nearby. Almost exactly one kilometer to the north is the Wawa at 10515 Baltimore Avenue in Beltsville.
Wawa’s application is tentatively set to be considered by the Planning Board at its April 30, 2020, meeting.
