Londonderry Heritage group hears gas plans

LONDONDERRY — Plans to upgrade two gas stations in town came before the Heritage Commission recently.

The group heard updated plans on both the Sunoco gas station site off Exit 5 near Liberty Drive and the Global gas station project on Route 102.

The Global plan includes demolishing and relocating an existing convenience store to include a drive-thru Dunkin’ Donuts shop and the installation of new fuel dispensers.

Alliance Energy Corporation is the applicant and owner.

The Sunoco plan includes a major overhaul and will include a diner and travel center.

That site will include a 15,080-square-foot building and upgraded fueling stations.

Jeffrey Merritt, project engineer for Bedford-based Keach-Nordstrom Associates, and property owner Floyd Hayes came before the Planning Board earlier this year.

The plan calls for a demolition of the present 1,800-square-foot building to make way for a travel plaza design. It would combine that property with two adjacent parcels, also owned by Hayes.

The building’s design would be an ell-shaped, stucco-style structure that would incorporate the existing canopy that is required by the Sunoco company.

Six existing gas pumps and four diesel pumps would remain. Additional parking would bring space for trucks and customer parking.

Both plans already came before the Planning Board for early design discussions.
