Chick-a-fil, Wawa coming to Jensen Beach
Jensen Beach, Fl (treasurecoast.com) -Chick-a-fil, Wawa are coming to Jensen Beach. Martin County’s fifth Wawa location and its third Chick-fil-A got the go-ahead Tuesday from the County Commission.
The 6,119-square-foot, 10-pump restaurant/gas station is to be built on 2.2 acres at the southeast corner of U.S.1 and Northwest Goldenrod Road, according to county records.
The 4,980-square-foot chicken restaurant, with a drive-thru, is to be built on 1.5 acres on U.S.1 south of the Wawa, records show.
The projects are part of a larger development known as West Jensen, first approved as a development of regional impact in 1989, said Pete Walden, county principal planner, at Tuesday’s County Commission meeting.
Wawa already has three locations in Martin County — two in Stuart and one in Port Salerno — and another one slated for Palm City near I-95. Chick-fil-A has a restaurant on U.S.1 in Stuart and a second location in the Treasure Coast Square mall food court.
The first main phase of West Jensen consists of 604 residential units and an 18-hole golf course on 650 acres, he said. The second phase is 659 residential units and about 1 million square feet of commercial and industrial space on 422 acres on the east and west sides of U.S.1.
