Western States General Contracting announced the near completion of the new, state-of-the-art, $13 million Mark Kia at the Scottsdale AutoShow at Salt River development. This is the third car dealership in the Scottsdale-based contractor’s automotive project portfolio and is expected to be completed this December. 

Slated to be the largest image facility in Arizona and the Western region to date, the 56,112-square-foot, two-story dealership will include sales, service and body repair services. Mark Kia will include 478 display spaces, 57 customer spaces and 266 service and inventory spaces. The 8.9-acre dealership site is located at 3333 89th Street in the Scottsdale AutoShow at Salt River complex, an automotive retail development located between Pima Road and the Loop 101, north of Thomas Road and south of Indian School Road.  

“Our team at Western States General Contracting is thrilled to be working with Marc Dubowy to construct his new Mark Kia dealership,” said Paul Zucchini, Founder and Owner of Western States General Contracting. “Marc and I first met more than 25 years ago when he owned the Smith Mesa Nissan dealership and have been working together on projects ever since.” 

Western States General Contracting has completed other significant dealership work in the community such as Mark Mitsubishi and an additional Mark Kia dealership in South Scottsdale. The full-service contracting company has already started construction on its next automotive project with Marc Dubowy, a Mark Mazda dealership, which will also be built in the Scottsdale AutoShow development. The two-story Mazda dealership will be 33,069 square-feet on a 4-acre site. 

“I have appreciated Paul’s transparency, attention to detail and the insistence of high quality from all the subtractors as they work hard to stick to the established timeline,” said Dubowy. “I’ll use Western States General Contracting for any future projects.”

In addition to auto projects, Western States General Contracting has contracted spaces for a variety of industries including aviation, education, healthcare, multifamily, office, restaurants and retail. Notable projects include a 195,000-square-foot American Airlines office tenant improvement space and more than 14 Sono Bello cosmetic surgery centers across the country.
