The Larry H. Miller Dealership Group currently operates five dealerships in the Phoenix market. Three of which are part of the West Valley reconstruction project; Larry H. Miller Toyota, Hyundai and Dodge Ram stores.
Construction for the Peoria projects is being managed by Miller Family Real Estate (MFRE) – a Larry H. Miller organization. Planned construction will consist of the full or partial demolition and complete reconstruction and renovation of the three existing automotive dealerships located on a fully improved 25-acre site. Site work will consist of creating new drive approaches, reconfiguring hardscape, site utilities and site lighting, removing and replacing asphalt, and completing landscaping per the requirements set out by the City of Peoria.
All existing dealership sales, service and parts departments will remain operational during the renovation portion of this project. For more information please visit www.bellroadconstruction.com.
