FORT MYERS This week, Scanlon Auto Group will celebrate the official opening of its new Lexus dealership located at 14200 South Tamiami Trail in Fort Myers.
This new two-story state-of-the-art dealership encompasses 77,800 square feet offering a high-end showroom with customer lounge, business offices and employee training rooms, indoor drive-through drop-off area with eight service advisor stations, indoor new vehicle delivery area, retail merchandise and parts area, a 43-vehicle climate controlled service area and a two-bay car wash.
"We are very proud of this new facility and have already had rave reviews from our clients," said Jay Scanlon, vice president of Scanlon Auto. "The Lexus name is associated with quality, luxury and superior customer satisfaction, and that is exactly what we wanted our new dealership to mirror."
Construction features of the new building include poured concrete, a 45-foot glass curtain wall, Roman classic travertine stone throughout the front faade, and walnut veneer doors and trim throughout the interior.
The customer lounge features a multi-tier Rulon wood panel ceiling with custom lights, three large flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi service. A staffed refreshment bar awaits guests and customers.

Owen-Ames-Kimball Company and GMA architects are currently remodeling Scanlon's former Lexus showroom, located next door, into a new Acura dealership. The 11,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to be completed by late spring 2014.
