Plantation, Fla. — A partnership led by South Florida shopping center owner and developer Beth Azor has begun construction on a 6,119-square-foot Wawa gas station and convenience store located in Plantation, roughly 30 miles north of Miami. The partnership, which is doing business as FLA BPI LLC, broke ground on the project April 4. The 1.7-acre property is situated within the northern portion of a three-acre site acquired by the partnership in 2016. Midtown Crossing, a 6,400-square-foot retail center, occupies the southern portion. Scheduled for completion in 12 months, the location will offer prepared foods, beverages, coffee, fuel services and subcharge-free ATMs.
