Rick Case drives so much business in the Weston / Davie area that the local business community always watches what he is doing. Well, his latest venture is a biggie. The South Florida Business Journal reports that:
Rick Case Automotive Group broke ground Wednesday on its Davie Volkswagen dealership, billed as the largest and tallest Volkswagen dealership in the world.
Stiles Construction expects to use a fast-track construction process. A grand opening is planned this fall, a news release said.
The 328,000-square-foot dealership will rise eight stories, featuring 1,000 new and used cars inside. It will open with 200 employees and grow to a staff of more than 300, the release said. Rick Case Automotive already has Honda, Hyundai and Fiat dealerships near the site of the planned VW dealership. It ranked 13th on the list of the Business Journal’s largest private companies, with $687.1 million in sales for 2011, up from 19th the previous year.
The scope of the project is huge and the speed of the expected date of completion is aggressive. This innovation in project management, and aiming high is so representative of South Florida. We are proud to be part of this community and seeing our local entrepreneurs shooting for the sky.
