Williams Motor Company has submitted a planning application which will see the demolition and redevelopment of its 1.8 acre BMW retail site in Manchester.
The AM100 group, which achieves an annual turnover in excess of £400m, intends to replace its existing facility, on Upper Brook Street, and construct a new four-storey building.
William’s Motor Co’s plans, submitted by Taylor Design Architects, would see the site split into two divisions, reported Insider Media.
The first, zone one, would include showrooms, valeting and car storage areas.
The second, zone two, would be ground level parking and back of house operations such as car washing and waste management.
An assessment of the current site, drawn up by Paul Butler Associates Planning, said the existing facility was more than 30-years-old and considered “no longer fit for purpose".
The report said that Williams BMW Manchester showroom was originally designed to sell 101 new and 75 used cars per year but now supports the retail of 1,500 new cars and 1,000 used cars to private customers per year, along with an additional 2,000 cars to corporate customers.
