Salt Lake City-based Larry H. Miller Dealership Group announced plans for the organization’s more than $30M West Valley dealership reconstruction effort with an estimated completion targeted for 2Q 2013.
With this investment, the company expects to make an impact by creating new jobs throughout the construction phase.
“After over 30 years we are thrilled to improve our dealerships on Bell Road to offer a more enjoyable buying experience for consumers in the greater Phoenix automotive market,” said Dean Fitzpatrick, President and COO for the Larry H. Miller Dealership Group.
“We are proud to show our commitment to the West Valley and look forward to seeing this reinvestment continue to give back to the community by creating new jobs and pumping more dollars into the Greater Phoenix economy,” Fitzpatrick said.
After all construction has been completed, the Larry H. Miller brand will have invested more than $30M and countless man hours in the West Valley community, contributing more than 133,000 SF of new construction to the Bell Road automotive corridor.
The Larry H. Miller Dealership Group operates five dealerships in the Phoenix market. Three of which are part of the West Valley reconstruction project; Larry H. Miller Toyota, Hyundai and Dodge Ram stores.
Construction for the Peoria projects is being managed by Miller Family Real Estate (MFRE), a Larry H. Miller organization. Planned construction will consist of the full or partial demolition and complete reconstruction and renovation of the three existing automotive dealerships located on a fully improved 25-acre site.
Site work will consist of creating new drive approaches, reconfiguring hardscape, site utilities and site lighting, removing and replacing asphalt, and completing landscaping per the requirements set out by the City of Peoria.
All existing dealership sales, service and parts departments will remain operational during the renovation portion of this project.
