MAJ Development Corp. of Vancouver will construct a gas station and travel center at Portland International Airport, the Port of Portland announced this week. The new facilities will be combined with a new cellphone waiting area.

The Port of Portland Commission recently approved a 20-year lease for the project, with an option for another 20 years.

The 3.4-acre facility will be located at the northwest corner of Northeast 82nd Avenue and Northeast Air Cargo Road, about a mile from the PDX terminal. It will include 18 fuel pumps, a convenience store, a national coffee retailer, a full pizza restaurant and another quick service restaurant.

MAJ will invest more than $4 million in the project and spend $100,000 on measures to minimize energy and water consumption, according to the Port of Portland. The gas station will also offer electric vehicle charging and an “environmentally friendly” car wash, the port said.

“The closest gas station is 2 miles from the airport,” MAJ president Michael Jenkins said in a news release. “This is an opportunity to bring a much-needed amenity to PDX travelers.”

Construction is expected to begin early next spring and completed next summer.

The new cellphone waiting area will accommodate 30 vehicles, in addition to the parking in the retail complex. It will replace the existing cellphone waiting area.
