The Toyota dealership of Downtown Los Angeles is undergoing an expansion just north of its existing site to accommodate growth. The four-tier, 290,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility will feature a 22,600 foot two-story showroom with vehicle display along Figueroa and Washington, a 40-car bay below grade service department and a wholesale and retail parts boutique.
The Shammas Group, which acquired the dealership in 2012, broke ground on the expansion project on June 10. The new facility is expected to be complete in late 2017.
As the Chair of the Economic Development Committee, I’m excited for the future of our local businesses and the role they play in job creation and stimulating the region’s economy.
Since Toyota of Downtown LA was established in 2012, they have grown by nearly 70 percent, while increasing sales tax revenue to the City by an additional $23 million over the past three years.
