Minister visits new Botany dealership under construction

Media Release

8th December 2016

Minister visits new Botany dealership under construction

Minister of Transport, the Hon. Simon Bridges and Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross recently visited the construction site for Armstrong Motor Group’s massive new dealership in Botany.

The project is on track for opening in May 2017 and now well over half way through the build program with the roof installed and concrete floors poured, having broken ground originally on 9th May 2016.

The site boasts over 5,100 square meters under roof including 21 service bays and is understood to be the largest retail dealership building in New Zealand.

The wider Botany area is growing incredibly fast, and this will provide the genesis of a new Auckland automotive precinct on for Auckland East.

For the Armstrong Motor Group, this further expands its Auckland footprint with dealerships already in Grey Lynn, Greenlane and Mt Wellington. The new motor vehicle dealership at 279 Ti Rakau Drive will be by far its largest.

Armstrongs have already announced that Mercedes-Benz have awarded the Armstrong Motor Group the franchise for the area – making it the third Mercedes-Benz dealer in Auckland and the tenth in New Zealand.

The Armstrong Motor Group is no stranger to the brand with two Mercedes Benz dealships, in Christchurch and Dunedin, and has been named Mercedes-Benz dealer of the year for the past five years.

Armstrongs have been working in conjunction with Ti Rakau Properties, part of the United Industries Group, to develop the 1.1 hectare Ti Rakau Drive site.
