Plans have been submitted by Listers Mercedes-Benz of Hull and Hull-based Wykeland Group which will see the luxury car retailer move from its current Priory Park dealership to a prime six-acre location just off the A63, to the west of Hull.
The £10m development at Wykeland’s Meltonwest business park in East Yorkshire, which is triple the size of the existing site, will have parking and display space for 120 cars.
Franchise Director Gary Kinnersley said: “With the incredible demand we have experienced in both sales and service in the past seven years, we have far outgrown our Priory Park site and are delighted to be working with Wykeland Group to develop the new premises on one of the busiest routes into Hull.”
The showroom, which is expected to be completed in late 2019, will feature the latest Mercedes-Benz retail concept, immersing the customer in total luxury as they browse the range of cars on display.
A state-of-the-art, 20-bay workshop will cater for the growing number of Mercedes-Benz cars in Hull and the surrounding areas where owners will be able to relax in a sumptuous new lounge while their car is serviced and valeted.
Gary said: “This development is fantastic news – a showroom with the wow factor, the creation of 25 new jobs and an expansive used car display area creates a win-win situation for staff, customers and the local economy.”
David Donkin, Property Director of Wykeland Group, said: “We’re delighted Mercedes-Benz and Listers have chosen to invest at this prime location to create a superb, next generation dealership
“The site is perfectly located just off the main route into Hull, with easy access to Beverley, Leeds and York, so it offers great visibility to Mercedes-Benz and convenience for the brand’s customers.”
