Another major addition to the area that is to come is Buc-ee’s, a gas station chain that started in Texas. The mammoth-sized store, whose footprint alone covers more than 50,000 square feet, slightly smaller than a football field, will feature 120 gas pumps, working kitchens and novelty shops, in addition to the usual offerings of snacks and candy sold at gas stations. The only Florida Buc-ee’s to date will be built on a 32-acre site on the north side of LPGA Boulevard, just east of Interstate 95.
Finally, a residential community is planned for the area. Latitude Margaritaville Daytona Beach by Minto Communities is a planned 6,900-home active adult community, which broke ground in March on the north side of LPGA Boulevard, just west of Interstate 95. According to the Daytona Beach News-Journal, The first 400 homes at the 55-and-older community are slated to be move-in ready by early second quarter 2018, while the Latitude Margaritaville sales center nearing completion next to the Halifax Humane Society is on track to open this fall.
Also, nearby is a regional distribution center for the grocery chain Trader Joe’s. A Trader Joe’s grocery outlet is expected for the area, but has not been confirmed yet. Stay tuned for more details.
