The two-story property will be located in the northwest quadrant of the remaining vacant land inside the the egg-shaped ring road serving the auto dealers in the shadow of Scotiabank Place, according to site plans filed with the city.
The Myers Automotive Group signed an agreement to purchase Citiwest Volkswagen late in 2009 with the intention of relocating the dealership to a new building in the Palladium Auto Park, sources said at the time.
Earlier this month, Volkswagen Canada said its 136 dealers sold 5,782 vehicles across the country last month, a 34.4-per-cent year-over-over increase at the automaker’s best August on record.
Myers already has a Hyundai and a Chevy-Buick-GMC dealership under its namesake banner in the Palladium Auto Park, which is also home to Kanata Mazda, Kanata Toyota, Kanata Honda and Capital Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram & Fiat.
The 100-acre property was jointly purchased by well-known Ottawa automotive dealers Tony Graham, John Mierins and Fern Turpin in 1990, according to its website.
