Auto magnate Terry Taylor wants to build a Lincoln dealership in Coconut Creek.
The 79,897-square-foot Lincoln of Coconut Creek would be constructed next to Infiniti of Coconut Creek, at 5501 W. Sample Road. The entire property is owned by TT of Sample LLC, led by Taylor of West Palm Beach-based dealership giant Automotive Management Services.
The company currently operates a small Lincoln dealership within the Infiniti building.
The city’s Development Review Committee heard the plans on July 14, and city staff will continue to review the application until it’s ready for the Planning and Zoning Board as well as the City Commission, said Amy Edwards, a development review specialist with the city of Coconut Creek.
The Lincoln dealership would have 29,924 square feet of showroom and office space, 49,973 square feet of automotive retail and 358 parking spaces. Penney Design Group in Bethesda, Maryland designed the project.
The only other Lincoln dealerships in Broward County are in Pembroke Pines and Pompano Beach.
South Florida is one of the busiest markets in the country for car sales, and the increase in new car values has boosted sales for many dealers. Building a stand-alone Lincoln dealership will make it easier for Taylor to provide repair and maintenance service to his customers.
