Wawa Inc. is moving quickly on its future store at the corner of main and main in the town of Vienna.
The Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain is approaching the Beltway in Northern Virginia with this location at 465 Maple Ave. W., at the intersection of Nutley Street and Maple Avenue. A former Coldwell Banker office will be modified to house the 9,000-square-foot store, with restrooms, seating and 42 parking spaces outside.
Similar to its recent additions in D.C. proper, the Vienna store will not have a gas station.
The chain is currently out for bid for general contractors. The work is valued at $499,999 and bids are due by May 16.
The existing building was constructed in 1974. Wawa’s plans include a new tower to create a small portico over the main entrance, a charcoal gray color to replace the existing red brick, and a new brick veneer to cover the existing white stucco columns. Vienna’s Board of Architectural Review approved the application in February.
