Two slivers of land.
One just more than 1,720 square feet. The other a little more than 2,800 square feet.
But those thin, grassy swaths soon will be patched to a 2.46-acre site that will become home to Largo's first Wawa.
Recently, city leaders unanimously approved a plan to vacate easements 10 feet wide and 172 feet long along the west and a 10-foot-by-280-foot section to the south at the Ulmerton Crossings site, where a 5,537-square-foot Wawa soon will be built.
The Wawa at 8910 Ulmerton Rd. is part of a larger 11-acre retail project. Plans for the shopping center include a proposed Walmart Neighborhood Market and possibly two more retail buildings.
The popular convenience store from the Northeast is known for its built-to-order hoagies, fresh-brewed coffee, breakfast sandwiches and fresh produce.
Wawa created a special store design and architecture for its Florida stores. The store's kitchen area will be the focal point, with food service, fresh beverages and a fresh express cafe. There will be abundant natural light and "warm Florida materials and colors," according to the Wawa website.
The chain held a grand opening last week for its Pinellas Park location, its first in Pinellas County.
