Tuesday, May 28 was the official groundbreaking ceremony for the Alpine Buick GMC dealership that will occupy what is now vacant land at 3106 W. County Line Road, just north of C-470 at the US 85/Santa Fe Drive exit. Councilmen Pat Driscoll of District One and Kyle Schlachter were in attendance.
Five years in the making; their new site sits on nearly 6.5 acres and is being prepped for a 50,982 sq. ft. state-of-the-art dealership. The nearly 52,000 square-foot luxury two-story dealership has a service facility which will include twenty-five service bays, a service reception area and an attached car wash facility. The 15,000 sq. ft. showroom on the main floor will showcase up to 8 vehicles.
In addition to second-floor office space, customers will have drive-up access to the second level 4,500 sq. ft. rooftop area that will have additional vehicles on display and will feature a lounge with a firepit for hosting various community events and client meetings. Along with lounges and comfy seating, customers will have access to free Wi-Fi and charging stations for their mobile devices while they visit. The facility is slated to be completed by summer of 2020.
