The Suss Superstore, a sister to the Suss Buick GMC dealer in Aurora, has purchased the Motor City facility where it has been doing business in Colorado Springs for the last five months.
Suss initially leased the 24,446-square-foot building 3.04 acres at 945 Motor City Drive, Dowis said. After the five-month lease, the dealer opted to purchase the facility for $2.4 million.
“It was nice to see a new dealership come into Colorado Springs,” Dowis said.
Randy Dowis and Bob Garner of NAI Highland Commercial Real Estate brokered the deal.
The location had been home to South Pointe Lincoln Mercury between 1988 and about 2009, Dowis said.
He said he and Garner were focused on finding an automotive dealer from Colorado Springs or Denver to fill the vacant space.
“We were fairly certain we weren’t going to attract a new car dealership,” he said.
