Miami Lakes, Fla. (Jan. 12, 2016) -- As Miami Lakes welcomes in 2016, progress on Miami Lakes Automall’s new building is beginning to take shape. The site has been excavated and its foundations are being laid. Once completed, it will be a new state-of-the-art automotive building that will serve as a service center and a new and used car dealership for Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Ram.
The new building will be called the Dodge Chrysler Jeep and Ram Building and will be a 50,000 sq. ft. energy-efficient facility offering customers world class amenities. The service center will be equipped with an express oil change center and heavy-duty lifts making it possible to service and repair industrial vehicles like trucks, busses and Promasters. Additionally, every serviced car will receive a complimentary car wash.
The new building’s amenities will include valet parking, high-speed wireless internet, a secure children’s play area and waiting areas with designer inspired finishes. Carlos Jimenez, the Southeast Business Center Director of the FCA Group, said the new building will be one of the “crown jewels” of the Southeast.
Several local leaders including Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi, and county commissioners, Nelson Rodriguez and Ceasar Mestre, were in attendance. Mayor Pizzi referred to the local government's recent efforts to engage and bring retail marketing to Miami Lakes.
“We dream about bringing nationally recognized organizations like Chrysler to our community,” Pizzi said. “This new building will help to create jobs in Miami Lakes. Miami Lakes Automall already has 255 employees and many of these people are our neighbors and taxpayers.”
Miami Lakes Automall’s current general manager and owner, Fred Senra, will remain general manager over the expanded property. Senra has been a Miami Lakes resident for over 30 years and has been an automotive professional for more than 40 years.
The building is expected to take approximately nine months to complete and the grand opening is slated for Labor Day weekend in 2016. The property will share the same address as Miami Lakes Automall, which is located in Miami Lakes at 16600 NW 57th Ave.
