Smart Motors to break ground on used car facility

Smart Motors

Smart Motors is building a 13,952-square-foot used car facility at 5702 Odana Road. The building, on a 5.6 acre lot, is scheduled to open this spring.

Smart Motors will begin construction next week on a facility that will give its used car dealership a significant upgrade.

The groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 26 for a 13,952-square-foot building at 5702 Odana Road. The two-story facility will replace a dated, one-story, 1,800-square-foot building on the same site and is scheduled to open this spring.

The project, by Sullivan designBuild of Madison, will architecturally mirror the Smart Motors new-vehicle building across the street and include a large showroom, a children’s play area and guest lounge, a separate area for the finance team and a marketing department. The development includes the demolition of the existing building on the site and the removal of an office building on a neighboring parcel to create a 5.6-acre site with prime corner visibility at Odana Road and Tokay Boulevard, according to documents.

The development is the latest in a series of improvements by Smart Motors since 2007 when it opened its spacious new-car facility along the Beltline at 5901 Odana Road. Other projects for the company, founded in 1908, include the purchase of Ball Body Shop in 2010; the addition of a budget car lot in 2011; expansion of the body shop in 2013 and expansion of its express lube facility.
