Gateway to Bowie Travel Center picks up permits

Published

on

The building permit for the Gateway of Bowie Travel Center at U.S. Highway 287 North and Farm-to-Market 1125 has been picked up from the City of Bowie code office and the plans list two national chain stores for the center.
Code Officer David Rainey said Victron Stores has plans to build a 9,100 square foot building that includes gasoline sales and a convenience store similar to the one located at Henrietta on U.S. 287. At this time it also will include a Taco Bell and Starbucks.
This project has been in the works since May 2019 when the company purchased a 9.59 acre tract from the city. Delays stemming from the pandemic, supply chains and other factors stalled the project, but it got back on track in late 2023.
Originally the plan set an estimated $2.5 million cost for the project. Rainey said it is unclear when construction may begin, but their plans have been approved with permits created and picked up by company officials.
