The Maryland Board of Public Works Board this week unanimously approved a sublease that will lead to the development of a new Sheetz gas station and store at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI).
Sheetz, a major Mid-Atlantic restaurant and convenience chain, will build a new store at the intersection of Aviation Boulevard and Amtrak Way, on the northwest side of the airport. The new location will sit at the approximately 4-acre site near the BWI Rail Station and the airport’s consolidated rental car facility. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2022.
“We are excited to welcome Sheetz to the airport and the local community,” said Ricky Smith, BWI executive director. “The popular, high quality Sheetz brand will reinforce our commitment to offer a convenient, modern airport with outstanding amenities.”
The Board of Public Works previously awarded a contract to PMG BWI Airport Plaza Developers, to develop the airport site and the company then worked with Sheetz to bring the popular convenience store chain to the airport.
“While this store location is in the very early stages of development, we are certainly very excited to introduce our unique Sheetz brand to both local and national travelers at BWI Marshall Airport,” said Steve Augustine, Sheetz vice president of real estate.
