The first commercial construction south of the 120 Bypass since the Promenade Shops at Orchard Valley opened eight years ago will be a convenience store with gas pumps.
It also will be the closest store of any type to nearly 1,200 existing homes in the Woodward Park neighborhoods.
The 3,000-square-foot Circle K convenience store with four Chevron fuel pumps under a 2,385-square-foot canopy is proposed for 1490 South Main Street on the southeast corner of the 120 Bypass and South Main Street interchange where a house is located near a dead-end frontage road.
The project is being reviewed by the Manteca Planning Commission at the Tuesday, July 26, 7 p.m. meeting at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St.
It is the second convenience store/gas station project being advanced for the Main Street corridor.
Planners have approved city’s third Chevron gas station and Food Mart combination on the west side of North Main Street just north of Lancaster Drive on a parcel between the Robert E. Goodwin Community School and the Manteca Moose Lodge. The 0.93-acre parcel had a dilapidated building that was previously used as an auto body and paint shop that was demolished last month to prepare the site for construction.
It will consist of 12 gas pumps under a canopy and a 3,700-square-foot building that includes the convenience store and a suite of 1,728 square feet to be rented for retail purposes. The project also includes a second building proposed for 5,858 square feet of retail space in four suites.
It is the first new station on North Main Street in nearly 20 years. Over the past 10 years two stations were removed along the corridor. They were the Shell station at Louise and Main that was replaced with a CVS Drug Store and a Beacon station at Alameda and Main that was razed. At one point there were plans by a bank to locate a branch on the former Beacon site.
Manteca already has five Chevron stations. They are on West Yosemite west of Union Road, Union Road at Louise avenue, Louise Avenue at Cottage Avenue, South Main Street at Mission Ridge Drive, and East Yosemite Avenue east of Spreckels Avenue.
