CarMax Proposes Dealership at Former Building 19 Site

The old Building 19 would be demolished along with the nearby salon building to make way for a new CarMax dealership.

CarMax Proposes Dealership at Former Building 19 Site
CarMax Superstores is proposing to develop the former Building 19 location on Bald Hill Road into a car dealership with sales and carwash facilities and about 600 parking spaces for customer parking and cars for sale.

The plan was to get a review by the city's Development Plan Review Committee on Feb. 5, but that meeting was delayed due to the snow storm. It has been rescheduled for Feb. 12 at 9 a.m. in council chambers at City Hall.

The project calls for demolishing the Building 19 and salon buildings and constructing a single story building with parking.

The sales building would be about 9,600 square feet, the service department would be 3,342 square feet and a small carwash facility rounds out the structures on the property. Of the 600 parking spaces, 200 would be for customer use. The rest would be to display cars for sale.

The 8.3 acre lot is designated C-4 Highway Business District and comprises 8.3 acres, of which 5.17 are in Cranston. 

What do you think of the proposal? Is a car dealership a good fit for the location? what would you like to see there?
