Construction of the new retail facility will begin immediately on the 3.13 acre site, which is located on Southdale Road East near Wharncliffe Road.
The 34,900-sq.-ft. structure is expected to be fully operational by the end of this year. When complete, the new facility will feature a 13,000-sq.ft. open-concept showroom and an expanded 13,980-sq.ft. service area that will include four vehicle-detailing bays and 16 service bays, including two oversized bays designed to accommodate the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. In addition, a six-car drive-in service area will help the dealership more effectively serve the needs of after-sales customers.
The layout of the new facility follows the proprietary Mercedes-Benz “Autohaus” concept, which promotes the widespread use of glass to maintain transparency and create a bright, open-concept feeling. This signature design also guarantees a consistent brand identity for each dealership in the company’s extensive cross-Canada network.
