FORT MYERS, Fla. (Aug. 8, 2014) – Scanlon Auto Group is nearing completion of its brand new Acura dealership located off of U.S. 41 at 14270 South Tamiami Trail in Fort Myers.
Scanlon’s Acura dealership will represent the latest “Generation III” Model Acura facility and the first of its kind in the country.
According to Scanlon Acura General Manager Frank Leslie, completion and occupancy is expected late September 2014.
Owen-Ames-Kimball Company is serving as the design/build team on the Acura project along with Ramon Acevedo of AIA of GMA Architects Planners as the project architect.
The new dealership will encompass an 11,000-square-foot floor plan aligning with the latest in Acura design elements. A two-bay enclosed and air conditioned new-car delivery area has been added. Features will also include tile flooring throughout both showroom and service shop work areas. Design intent will convey an abundance of exterior natural light throughout. Interior appointments and furnishings will reflect the latest in style and design.
A car wash facility has been constructed to service customers along with a complimentary coffee bar, waiting room and Wi-Fi connection.
“When the Acura dealership is completed, we will have invested more than $25 million into Lee County with our new construction projects located on 11.79 acres and created more than 40 new jobs,” said Jay Scanlon, president of Scanlon Auto Group. “We are proud to say more than 90 percent of the construction work is being completed by local subcontractors. We have called Southwest Florida our home for more than three decades, and we plan to be here for many more.”
