Construction company, Stellar, recently broke ground on our new $6M facility on February 17th, 2016. This state-of-the-art facility is located directly across the street of our current facility (9875 Atlantic Blvd). It will replace the former Tom Bush Collision Center, which has moved around the corner to 9750 Regency Square Blvd. The new BMW building will include over 44,000 square feet of showroom, offices and a service shop with twice the capacity of our currently facility.  Stellar is a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide.  

"We have high quality standards for our facilities," said Megan Bush, Business Development Manager, Tom Bush Family of Dealerships. "Stellar met those standards and more for our collision center, and we're confident they'll meet them again. This dealership project is especially exciting as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of BMW this year." 

"As one of the world's top luxury car brands, BMW requires all of its facilities be built to strict brand standards," said Richard Lovelace, Stellar Senior Vice President, Commercial Group. "Stellar has completed over 20 Northeast Florida auto dealerships, with a portfolio of multiple luxury names. We're eager to collaborate with the Tom Bush family on meeting these stringent standards and infusing other quality features to provide another upscale auto facility for Jacksonville."

The showroom will include high-end finishes like specialty clinker floor tile and a customer lounge with a coffee bar. The fully air-conditioned service shop will be stocked with all new auto maintenance equipment, lifts and tools. In addition, level-3 electric vehicle charging stations will enable recharge in as little as 30 minutes. Construction is expected to be completed at the end of the year.
