Largest Station in the World – 116 pumps

In what could soon be the largest gas station and convenience store in the world, “Buc-ee’s” officially broke ground on a project in Johnstown that will redefine the way people are welcomed to northern Colorado.  With a 74,000-square-foot convenience store and 116 gas pumps built into the project design, Buc-ee’s president Beaver Atlin told CBS4 this store will be his company’s largest ever.  Watch the news clip below.

The project, which has been months in the making, officially broke ground on Tuesday morning. The location, set at the southwest corner of Highway 60 and I-25, promises to change the landscape of Johnstown’s presence along I-25.

Johnstown officials told CBS4 the project comes as the demand for housing and retail in northern Colorado booms and is expected to skyrocket in the coming decades.

“Northern Colorado is going to double in population in the next 20 years,” said Matt LeCerf, Town Manager for Johnstown.

While many may think that statistic is either crazy or unfathomable, multiple studies have backed the projected population growth.

“(Growth) is happening, but it is happening at a very smart pace,” Johnstown Economic Development Manager Sarah Crossthwaite told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas.

One survey suggested more than 40,000 homes will be built within seven miles of Johnstown in the coming decades. Johnstown town officials said they are working to not only meet the demands of the market today but to also prepare for the coming growth.
