Plans are underway for the construction of a new Nissan dealership location on the south side of Fort Collins.
If approved by the city, the project would go up on a currently vacant site in the 5800 block of S. College Avenue, near a current Nissan dealership showroom.
Once the new 40,000 square foot building is completed, the existing showroom structure will be repurposed as a Kia dealership facility.
The new building, along with a lot large enough to display nearly 400 vehicles, will be built on 6 acres at the intersection of Crestridge Drive and South College Avenue.
The idea behind the twin construction and renovation projects is to combine in one place the vehicle dealerships owned by the Valley Auto Group.
Although an exact construction schedule has not yet been announced, it is thought that work building the new Nissan dealership structure could launch later this year, with a rough 2023 completion date.
Besides allowing for the display of two different brand vehicles all at one site, the project will also provide for a staging area specific to the growing electric vehicle market.
