Charles Whittall’s Orlando-based Unicorp National Development secured financing for its first project in Miami-Dade County.

Property records show an affiliate of Unicorp just scored a $6.6 million construction loan from Florida Community Bank to build a Wawa gas station and convenience store on the 1.56-acre lot at 3300 Northwest 87th Avenue, which it bought in January for $6.4 million.

The Unicorp affiliate filed plans with Miami-Dade County to replace the shuttered 6,180-square-foot Tony Roma’s building with the Wawa, according to the South Florida Business Journal. It would have 12 fueling pumps and more than 40 parking spaces.

Another Wawa is under construction in West Miami, next to El Palacios De Los Jugos off Coral Way. The Pennsylvania chain of convenience stores also has locations planned for or open in Miami Gardens, Deerfield Beach, Riviera Beach, Davie and Pompano Beach.

Unicorp has developed more than $2.5 billion of real estate across the country, according to its website. The Orlando-based company is in the midst of developing a $1 billion mixed-use development near Walt Disney World.
